DLL Umpire Clinics

Updated Tuesday November 12, 2019 by Davis Little League.

DAVIS LITTLE LEAGUE UMPIRE TRAINING

 

DLL is proud to announce its Spring training dates. All managers, especially new managers and those moving up to a different division are welcome and encouraged to come to our Rules Clinics

 

Umpire training involves a 2-part process. The first step are the Basic Rules Clinics. Basic Rules Clinics include a Part 1 and Part 2. Both are required. Basic Rules Clincs are divided into Adult and Youth clinics. They are tailored to keep the attention of youths who like active clinics and to see demonstrations, and adults who love to get into the grit of rules and have a longer attention span.

 

The next step in the training process are the Basic Field Clinics. These clinics are divided into divisions (AA/Farm and AAA/Majors) and combine both adult and youth umpires. Attendance at both the Basic Rules Clinics (both parts) and the Basic Rules Clinic are requred to be able to volunteer with DLL as a Junior or Adult Umpire. 

 

Lastly, we have an optional Advanced Rules and Mechanics Clinic for experienced umpires. Please see below for more details. 

 

Please email teena@davislittleleague.org or umpire@davislittleleague.org to sign up for clinics or ask which clinics would be best for you - we will have some snacks and drinks at all training sessions!
