Ridgefield Little League is looking for umpires. Boys and girls ages 13 and above are eligible. Umpires are needed for games starting-in mid-April through the fall. Umpires earn between $25 and $35 per game.

Umpiring is a great way for for your child to earn spending money, gain leadership skills and learn about the game of baseball. While a passion for the game is required, no experience is necessary.

Training clinics will be held on Saturday April 7, and Saturday April 14, at Yanity Gym from 8 to 10 a.m.

All umpires must attend at least one training clinic and and new umpires are encouraged to attend both sessions. Attendees should arrive 15 minutes before each session.

Experienced umpires typically receive the “plate” assignments while newer umpires perform the “field” position.

If you are a new umpire and unable to attend either session please send your name, email address, mailing address and phone number to wlc.taxman@rrccpapc.com

Additional training sessions will be scheduled later in the month. Experienced umpires can communicate through the assignor.com program.
