Training

Our goal is to give every umpire the tools they need to be successful and progress to umpiring higher level games. District 68 provides extensive training for all of our volunteer umpires in the form of classroom rules clinics, on-field mechanics clinics, and online resources. Listed above are upcoming scheduled clinics.  In addition, during the season if you are interested in receiving in-season mentoring or an evaluation, please email the Chief Umpire

Junior Umpire Program

The Junior Umpire program is open to anyone aged 11 through 17 and provides a great baseball and leadership experience for our youth. Anyone interested should email the Chief Umpire. See below for a brief program overview.

Umpire Gear Websites

A well dressed umpire creates a good first impression and projects the confidence and respect that can help make a game go smoothly. It is recommended (strongly recommended for Major and higher games) that you wear grey slacks and black athletic shoes which can generally be found cheaply at local stores. RMVLL will provide every umpire with a navy blue umpire shirt and hat. The umpire storage bin has chest protectors, masks, shinguards, indicators, and brushes. Please return these items to the storage bin after each game and make sure you lock the bin!

For those of you interested in purchasing your own umpire gear, the below sites have a wide selection of items to choose from:
