Blue Crew Training

Our Umpire Leadership Team (ULT) is composed of many decades of volunteerism and dedication to the League, even many many years after our kids have left the League. We take great pride in training our volunteer umpires to do their best for the kids as the Umpire Crew for the League. To that end, we put a ton of effort and expect a certain minimum level of effort in return from our parents. We do recognize everyone is busy and do our best to make the training clinics efficient and worth the time.

Never umpired before? Don't fret - we have created a comprehensive training program for umpires of all levels. We make sure that every umpire is putting their best foot forward when stepping onto the field  - no different than every player and coach.

New Umpires to PHBA from other leagues / associations

  • We recognize that we get umpires from other leagues with varying levels of experience. With that in mind, we still require that all new umpires attend the Classroom Clinic in order to obtain a better grasp on how we run the Blue Crew at PHBA.
  • Let us know right away that you do have experience. We’ll put “extra eyes on you” during Field Day training and fastrack you to the appropriate level once evaluated by the ULT.
