Additional District 4 Clinics & Resources

Rules Clinics - two different sessions! SEE FLYER BELOW
**These are designed for Volunteers, Managers, Coaches and Parents who want to learn the rules & how the game is played

Two and a half hour evening sessions designed to cover the key rules that umpires, managers, coaches and other volunteers need to know.  Clinics will include time to have your tough rule questions answered!

*Wednesday, February 11, 2015 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm Walnut Creek Intermediate School Multipurpose room, 2245 Walnut Blvd., Walnut Creek.  Hosted by Walnut Creek Little League

*Wednesday, February 18, 2015 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm Pinole City Hall, 2131 Pear Street, Pinole.  Hosted by Pinole Hercules Little League

Basic Umpire Mechanics Clinic - 3 different dates and locations!
One day clinic designed for the beginning or experienced umpire who wants to learn basic umpire mechanics for the 60 foot diamond.  Clinic will cover basic positioning, how to make a call, and what signals and calls to use.  Clinic will cover both the plate umpire and the base umpire roles.  Instructors will be from the C4UA Training Staff and other Western Region umpire school instructors.  Preregistration of students will be required (more on this action to follow).

As we have shared with you already, these clinics are designed to help you prepare those umpires that will be working a significant number of games for your league, or those that you really want to get more involved.  The casual volunteer or the brand new youth umpire that may work only lower Minors and just a few games are not the target for these clinics - you may need to design your own in league training program as well.

Each clinic will be identical in content, but we have set locations in different areas of the District to allow your umpires to select the one that fits them the best.

*Saturday February 21, 2015, time To Be Announced at the fields of Lafayette Little League.

*Saturday, February 28, 2015 time to be announced at the fields of Alameda Little League

*Sunday, March 8, 2015 time to be announce at the fields of East County Little League.

Western Region Outreach Clinics - for umpires who want additional intensive instruction.
The Western Region offers mechanics clinics in several locations across Northern California.  These are taught by experienced Western Region instructors and offer your umpire the chance to meet volunteers from other Districts, learn from new instructors, and practice the latest and best mechanics.  Two clinics that are close to District 4 you should suggest to your umpires -

Western Region Outreach Mechanics Clinic hosted by Section 5 in Los Gatos on February 5 and 6, 2015.  HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!  More information can be found at https://www.eteamz.com/llbwest/files/2015NorCal-Sec5-UmpireClinic.pdf

Western Region 90 Foot Diamond Mechanics Outreach Clinic, March 13-15, 2015 in Stockton.  For those umpire who want to learn more about large diamond mechanicshttps://www.eteamz.com/llbwest/files/90Foot.pdf

Everyone who intends to Umpire in 2015 (levels Farm A – Juniors) should attend one of the offered clinics if they have not already attended one of the District Sponsored Clinics in 2015.

Rule Books and Umpire Books will be distributed at the completion of the training to all Umpires and Managers/Coaches. There is also a wealth of very useful information with links from Little League International on our website under the Umpire Central – Local Rules Tab. Please review this material if you have any specific questions about a particular rule or process. You will more than likely find your answer there.
