Umpires

Gig Harbor Little League: Umpire Information

GHLL Umpires dedicate their time and efforts to umpire games fairly and impartially. They are no different than managers, coaches, parents, and board members who all work to help make our Little League baseball and softball programs a success.

Aside from calling ball or strike, safe or out, umpires are responsible for teaching players good sportsmanship and the rules of the game. 

  • With over 870 kids playing on over 75 teams in GHLL each year, that equals almost 500 baseball and softball games that need to be umpired each season. GHLL needs volunteers – moms, dads, brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles, grandparents and friends – to be trained to become umpires.

 

  • Getting trained by experienced Little League staff is the best way to ensure that umpiring is a positive experience for everyone. Our Washington District 2 Little League staff provide multiple training sessions for volunteers interested in becoming an umpire. Our GHLL umpire staff is also available by appointment to provide you with training, answer questions, and umpire games with you. Additionally there is information posted on the GHLL website under the Umpire Resources tab including a power point presentation and links to Little League University Umpire resources. 

 

  •  Although we do not pay umpires there are a number of incentives to doing the work, including a free meal at the Snack Shack and partial and full reimbursement of registration fees after completing a season of umpiring. 

 

Help set a positive example, please volunteer to become an umpire today -
it is THE BEST SEAT IN THE HOUSE!
