Calling New Umpires
NSDSA “INVITATION for NEW SOFTBALL UMPIRES”
- Have you previously umpired, given up, and now want to return?
- Are you a player who would like to develop a different aspect of your game?
- Are you an interested junior player who would like to give umpiring a go ?
- Are you an “SES” (Saturday Expert Spectator) who sits on the side lines and thinks you can, and would like to do that - ie Umpire?
- Feel the wonderful urge to give back to the (softball) community?
- Are you a parent or partner who would like to share in the sport that your child or partner plays?
Interested ! - If you are any of the above and would like to umpire for North Shore this year, let us know.
- Experience necessary – Not much. It would be helpful if you understand the basics of Softball (or Baseball).
- Knowledge of the rules – as above. You will learn the rules as you develop.
- Fitness – You will be moving a bit around the diamond so a medium level of fitness is appropriate. (If you have any pre-existing medical conditions please check with your doctor first).
- Gear and Clothing - Fairly simple to start – we will let you know.

- Learning - We're all continually learning as umpires, and North Shore will support and guide you in your umpire training and growth.
- Training - For new and returning umpires NSDSA is looking at running some umpiring training sessions early in the season – keep posted.
