the AAA, Coast, and Majors levels of play. Below you'll find training and game scheduling information as well as other information and links for umpires and anyone else interested in the rules of
the game. If you have questions, please email the Umpire-in-Chief, Jay Clark, at [email protected] or directly at [email protected].
Junior Umpire Program
Will you be a teenager (13-19) in the spring? Are you a former Little Leaguer, knowledgeable about baseball and/or softball and looking to earn some cash? If so, then the Issaquah Little League
Junior Umpire Program might be for you! We are looking for teens who know baseball/softball and who want to umpire games for 9-12 year olds on weeknights after school and on weekends during the
day. We will train you and provide the equipment you need. We pay $30 a game during the season and $75/$50 during the playoffs depending on the position. To ensure we have appropriate coverage we
are asking you to commit to attend the training and have the time to work at least one game a week.
If you want to join the program, use the youth umpire registration link above. Follow the instructions and register as an umpire. We'll get back in touch with you to tell you when the training is
and how to get started.
Adult Umpire Program
Issaquah Little League is always looking for adult volunteers who want to umpire. We will provide the training and equipment; you provide your time and enthusiasm.
Umpiring is a great way to be involved with Little League and to watch games from the best seat in the house! Plus, you'll get to work with our great corps of teenage umps.
If you want to volunteer to be an adult umpire, use the adult umpire registration link above. Follow the instructions and register as an umpire. We'll get back in
touch with you to tell you when the training is and how to get started.
District 9 offers Umpire Resource documents to help educate and train umpires. Please visit http://www.d9ump.org/umpResources.htm
Little League National site https://www.littleleague.org/university/umpires/ has some wonderful resources for
umpires and videos that help explain various calls and situations that occur during the game.
We will be holding two sessions of training – classroom (Zoom) and field for first and second year umpires and anyone wanting a refresher. This will be the only time that training is conducted for this season. Please ensure that you are in attendance for both sessions.
