2021 Training

Umpire Training will be consist of an introductory meeting via Zoom, followed up with on-field training.  Dates will be forthcoming.  Games will begin 1st week in May 2021

Similar to our 2020 season,  we will be implementing social distancing measures for everyone's safety.  Umpires will be calling games from behind the pitcher's mound rather than from behind the plate to maintain physical distance.

Any additional questions, please send an email to Philip Coughlin,
