How to Become an Umpire.

There are many reasons for umpiring. They include a love of the game, the needs of the players, physical fitness, personal challenge and lastly earning a few spending bucks.


Starting on January 2nd, NJBUA holds a weekly training class. It is an eight-week course that covers everything from classroom studies to on-field mechanics. When the weather allows, we also take our cadets out to umpire a high school game. Our instructors are actually side by side with you and help you each step of the way. Upon completion of this course, you are then ready to become an official NJBUA umpire. We continue our training with regular organizational meetings held throughout the season. Not only is umpiring fun, but it is also a great activity to help keep you in shape. Oh yes, it can also pad your pockets with some additional spending cash. To find out more about becoming an NJBUA official, contact one of our officers by their listed e-mail address.
