The PHBA Website is http://www.phba.org. This is the site where you signed up your players if you are a parent volunteer. If you are a relative of the player and would like to umpire, you must still have an account in PHBA. You will simply signup as a relative of the player. You may need to request that the parent who signed up the player assist you with the sign up.
There is one known issue that may prevent you from being successful. If you have used the same email address for multiple user accounts in PHBA, your account may not have come into the PHBA Blue Crew site automatically.
