PLEASE NOTE THE INFORMATION ON THIS PAGE WILL NOT APPLY TO THE 2021 SEASON. PLEASE CLICK ON THE OTHER UMPIRE MENU OPTIONS FOR UPDATED 2021 INFORMATION
We are already working toward the upcoming 2020 season and there are many changes on the way. This season will include a very large House League - 48 teams and 25 Rep teams – one of the largest Rep programs in Canada!
If you were a Level 2.3 umpire in 2019 you will need to attend a SuperClinic this year in order to receive Level 3 certification. Registration is now open - www.baseballontario.com/umpires. Registration is limited. If you do not or cannot attend, you will need to register for a Level 2 clinic and you will remain as 2.3 for this year. Level 3 umpires can umpire Rep Midget baseball and above.
All Rep-level baseball umpires are required by the Ontario Baseball Association (OBA) and Baseball Canada to be re-certified yearly. Oakville Minor Baseball will be hosting a one-day clinic on April 18, 2020 (9:00am - approx 4:00pm at Garth Webb Secondary School on Westoak Trails Blvd). This clinic certifies Level 1 or Level 2 umpires from Oakville as well as umpires from the surrounding area. You will be required to attend the entire clinic to successfully attain certification by the OBA trainers.
· In the event that our clinic date does not work with your schedule, you will be required to attend an alternate course in the 1-day format at another hosting facility. The list of clinics is posted on the OBA website at www.baseballontario.com. Dates are added periodically over the spring so check in often.
· Click on the Umpires “Development” tab and search under the “2020 Umpire Clinics” tab. There are several clinics posted and note that space is limited and pre-registering is required.
· Step #1- Register at www.baseballontario.com
· Step #2- Watch for an email from Heidi Dombek to confirm pre-registration and further information on how to complete registration to attend the Oakville clinic.
If you are not interested in returning as an umpire, please take a moment and let me know. Your name will be removed from my directory and email distribution list.
I look forward to another busy summer and will be updating more details on the Baseball Oakville website soon.
Should you have any questions please contact me, Heidi Dombek, Umpire Scheduler
