UMPIRES – JOB DESCRIPTION

Reporting to the Umpire Chief, we are looking for new umpires.

RESPONSABILITIES

Control, apply and enforce the rules of games played between teams that are members of Baseball Québec.

REQUIREMENTS

  • ​Be at least 13 years old during the calendar year
  • Have knowledge of the rules of baseball
  • Complete and pass a mandatory 1 to 2-day training course to obtain accreditation
  • Good command of French. English will be an asset
  • Must be available on weekday evenings and sometimes on weekends

SALARY

​Depending on the category and level of the officiated games and the ranks and years of experience obtained by the candidate.  For more details, see the price list for the 2019 season.  (details to follow)

​If you are interested, send us your application by completing the registration form  and send it to our Umpire Chief.

​Please also remember that your involvement as a baseball player takes precedence over your involvement as an umpire.  Arrange to give your availability outside of the games and practices of your team.

COURSES FOR UMPIRES

​For umpire course availability (level 1, 2 or 3), visit the Lac St-Louis Umpire page on the Quebec Baseball website.  The courses will be held in April or May.  The course will be paid for by BWI, if you umpire a minimum number of games during the baseball season.
