We are pleased to announce that registration is now open for all District 4 Umpire Clinics.
The list of clinics and registration links can be found at the following weblink - Umpire Clinic Registration
All students must preregister for the clinics to ensure that we know how many students to expect, their experience, and that the proper waivers have been obtained prior to the clinic.
Many have asked which clinics should a volunteer umpire attend. Here is a brief summary of how our clinics might fit their needs.
For a beginning volunteer adult who plans to do only a few games to meet a volunteer requirement:
- The CVLL basic umpire mechanics clinic is the best place to start,
- District 4 Basic Mechanics Clinics (Field and Plate) are good substitutes for the CVLL clinic. Register with the link above.
For an experienced volunteer adult who is going to umpire at the advance Minor or Majors level in your local league:
- District 4 Basic Mechanics Clinics is the correct clinic. Preregister with the link above
For an experienced volunteer adult who desires to umpire in the post season tournaments, and those who plan to enter the District Umpire development program to be eligible to umpire in semi final and final games in the tournaments:
- Basic Mechanics Clinic is required
- Attendance at a Western Region Umpire Academy, weekend clinic, or Western Region Outreach Clinic is recommended.
For a Junior Umpire (youth umpire not yet 18 years of age):
- For beginners, attend your local league umpire clinic
- For those with interest, and those experienced Junior umpires, they should attend the District Junior Umpire Clinic.
For umpire who plan to umpire in Intermediate, Junior or Senior Baseball:
- Attend the Big Diamond Umpire Clinic
The first clinic is coming up on February 10th, 2019
UPDATE 02/21/19: We have two events coming up in March!

The Umpire Clinic is for all new adult and Jr. volunteer umpires. This is required if you're planning to umpire games this season unless you have had previous umpire training, although it's a great refresher for experienced umpires.
