Junior/Intermediate Umpire Clinic 2017
GBMSL is proud to host a Junior/Intermediate Umpire Development clinic, which is run by Softball Ontario who supply all materials and Level 2 or higher Fast Pitch Umpires as instructors.
I would like to remind all that it is mandatory that any Umpire hired within our league be registered by Softball Ontario so that the umpires are covered with the correct insurance. Junior Umpires are qualified to work games from Tyke to Peewee, with the only limitation being that they may only work the bases at the Peewee level for some games.
Registration will only be accepted by using the online form this year. Phone in or faxed registrations will not be accepted.
