CPLL Umpire Clinic: Sun, Feb 11 9am - 2pm
Hello CPLL Families:
CPLL will be holding it’s annual Umpire Clinic on Sun, Feb 11 from 9am – 2pm. This is a great opportunity for both youth and adults to help Cambrian Park become an even better league. Any volunteer at CPLL is welcome and encouraged to umpire games. AAA and Majors games are always umpired and AA games are umpired in the postseason.
Each team in divisions AA – Majors is required to provide umpires (both home plate and bases); at least 8 times during the season, for AAA and/or Majors games. The umpires in our league are all volunteers and this is the only way that we are able to provide umpires for our kids during the season. Any representative of a baseball team (parent, grandparent, etc.) is welcome to umpire these games (either as a plate or bases umpire). As you know, the managers and coaches are also volunteers and they spend an immense amount of their time throughout the season coaching the team and it’s very helpful if they are not also obligated to take all of the umpiring duties for their own team too.
The umpire clinic is available to any adult (must be a registered volunteer) and youth (13-18) as well as players currently in the Majors division that are baseball age 11 or 12. For the youth, it is a great opportunity to learn leadership skills (can apply time to volunteer hours, as many schools require) and all youth volunteers who umpire games are also paid a small amount per game, plus they receive full meal at the end of the game. What a deal!
