Issaquah Little League Umpire Program

 

The Issaquah Little League Baseball and Softball umpire staff consists of adults and teenagers working baseball and softball games at the AAA, Coast, and Majors levels of play. Below you'll find more information on each of the programs, training and game scheduling information, and other resources for umpires and anyone else interested in the rules of the game.

If you have questions, please contact the Umpire-in-Chief.

Junior Umpire Program

Will you be a teenager (13-18) 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.

  • Umpires are paid between $25-$75 per game depending on experience, position, and game levels.
  • 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 youth umpire program, follow the registration instructions below. We'll get back in touch with you to tell you when the training is and how to get started. Note that the mandatory Little League background checks are now handled electronically as part of the registration process.

UMPIRE TRAINING

In addition, the Little League National site has a number of suggestions, guidance, and videos that help explain various game calls and situations for umpires.

Issaquah Little League 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.
