Umpires are always needed for all divisions, both travel and house league. All umpires must attend a clinic EACH YEAR and pass a written test from Baseball Ontario if they want to umpire travel baseball. If you umpired last year, you will receive a phone call about the clinic. If you know any other boys or men interested in umpiring bring them along. Even during the season... if you think you might like to try umpiring please inform me because the GNBA always needs new umpires for all divisions. The GNBA also has a DVD library of Umpire videos which can be borrowed on a weekly basis.
