2018 Umpire Clinic

If you were not able to attend our clinic date(s), please attend another Associations     clinic date/location, using clinic date link below. Please ensure you advise the Umpire Allocator which clinic location you attended to verify your attendance. Please also request a receipt (or email a copy of your BCBUA payment receipt) in order to be reimbursed your clinic fee at of the end of the season (see below information regarding reimbursement).

MEMBERSHIP FEES are as follows:
$50 – 14 years of age or older as of December 31st of current year.
$25 – 13 years or younger as of December 31st of current year.

All NEW umpires should take Level 1 … if you have taken the Level 1 clinic two (2) or more times, please take the Level 2 clinic.

If you are 14 years or older, please take the Level 2 clinic even if your first time (although if you wish to take both Level 1 and Level 2 clinics, your membership fee will allow you to do so).

Please use this link to register for BBA and/or other clinic dates:
Once you have chosen a clinic date/location, you will be sent to Member Registration page, here you will sing-in to Register and Pay. If you are a NEW umpire you will be required to become a BCBUA Member first, for Area – please select Lower Mainland West.

If you are already a member and have forgotten your member ID or password you will need to go to the Member Login in page and click forgot password, if forgot your ID you will need to contact BCBUA.

BBA requires ALL umpires to attend clinics each year regardless if you attended same level previous year. Each year new rules and information is provided to ensure our umpires are adequately prepared each season.

Please note, that taking the Level 2 clinic will not guarantee you will umpire Level 2 games (13U-AA or 15U-A) you will need to be assessed by UIC first.

Umpires are not permitted to umpire their own age group or siblings games, umpires MUST be one age level above age group being umpired; Examples:
  • 16 years or older can umpire 15U and lower games;
  • 14 and 15 year-old’s can umpire 13U and lower games;
  • 12 and 13 year-old’s can umpire 11U and lower games;
  • 10 and 11 year-old’s will ONLY be able to umpire 9U games
We have a new website (still under construction, not all tabs have been set-up), once the umpire page set-up has been finalized, I will send umpires information on how to login, set-up availability, etc.
For now, ALL new and returning BBA umpires will need to set up a NEW BBA UMPIRE PROFILE, please use this link to enter your information: This is different from the BCBUA Membership ID/Login information.

If more than one umpire in a house hold, you must use a different PRIMARY email address for each umpire.

Only Registered BBA players will be reimbursed their clinic fee and only after they have umpired a MINIMUM of 5 (five) spring season league games for BBA. Reimbursements will be mailed out to the parents of umpires late August or early September.

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.
