The Little League Southeast Region Umpire Program, led by the Region’s Volunteer Staff, provides training, education and resources to Little League umpires located throughout the eight-state region. Umpires can attend various events annually to improve and hone their skills, with a guarantee to learn something new each time they attend. The Region also offers a points program for those attending events as well as an alumni association for umpires appointed to past Southeast and Southern Region Tournaments.

- Why Did I Get Involved with Little League?: “Madison Little League was short on umpires and my dad, a board member of the league and umpire-in-chief, asked me to help out. Being a big baseball player and fan, I decided to give it a try and now here I am over 37 years later still having fun.”
- Why Do I Enjoy About Being a Staff Member?: “The opportunity to work with an outstanding Southeastern Region Umpire Staff. Being an instructor has allowed me to meet and help develop many umpires so they can reach their dream of umpiring at a World Series. It’s a joy to see umpires achieve their dream of umpiring at a World Series and to hear the great time they had. This is what it is all about, working hard to reach a dream and having fun once you are there. At every umpire school, clinic, roadshow, I look forward to meeting so many old friends and making new friends.”
