Umpire School

Little League® International Baseball and Softball is pleased to extend a cordial invitation to all league volunteers to join our enthusiastic Little League Instructors in Williamsport, Pennsylvania on April 17 - 22, 2018 for our week-long Little League Umpire School. It will be held in the Dr. Creighton J. Hale International Grove Dining Hall, Recreation Room (2nd Floor).

The week-long session will cover rules, regulations, and interpretations (Baseball and Softball); the mechanics of the two-umpire system; the philosophy, mental approach, and attitude toward Little League Baseball and Softball; the handling of situations and control of the game; as well as three-and four-umpire system discussions.

The cost of the school will include a light dinner Tuesday evening, three meals per day (Wednesday - Saturday), two meals (Sunday), and housing in Little League International Dormitories. Each student attending the school will need to provide their own equipment including an umpire hat, indicator for balls and strikes, baseball glove, mask, and complete plate gear(if they have it).
