A respected profession among baseball players, coaches and spectators. It is this sort of profession that can teach you how to manage your time well, manage people and gain valuable experience in dealing with rules and being the "man in charge".
At Cronulla Sharks Baseball Club we supply umpires for the Saturday morning junior games and provide a start to a pathway to the upper levels and progressing through the game to local park ball competitions right up to National level tournaments and the Australian Baseball League.
For season 2014/2015 your club needs your help, we are looking for children 14 years or older and adults who are willing to help us umpire our junior games. Your club will help you get qualified as an umpire and will also help you to seek out and join the St George Sutherland Baseball Umpires Association.
If you have any questions or would like to volunteer your time, please get in contact with our clubs Umpire Coordinator Riley Barrington via email firstname.lastname@example.org .
Baseball NSW advised us that they are running one last Level 3 Coaching Course before the end of the year.
Information regarding the coaching course can be found on the Baseball NSW website.
