Want to Volunteer?

Looking for an exciting way to become involved in youth baseball? Don't have the time needed to commit to coaching a team? Umpiring may be the perfect way to volunteer your time and help your Local League!

There are 100's of games each season that require umpires so there are plenty of opportunities to call a game. The typical time commitment to officiate a game is about 2 1/2 hours, and the best part is, No Experience Is Required! We offer free training to all those interested in Umpiring. We supply the training and you supply your time for a great cause, our kids. Expand your knowledge of the game (far beyond that of a player), ultimately earn respect from Children's Parents, Coaches, Managers, and the Players themselves. I guarantee that you'll rekindle your love for the game and you'll get the best seat in the house!

Why Volunteer? "Because the integrity of the game rests in the hands of the Umpire!"

How to Become a Certified D62 Umpire-Umpire Training Held in February and March Each Season(click link for dates)

After taking the first steps of learning the skills of umpiring from the D62 rules and field clinic sessions, the next goal is to attain the classification of "Certified" D62 umpire. When you certify, you receive a D62 hat, patch, and certificate, and you are eligible for assignment to post-season games within the district.

To become a Certified D62 Umpire requires completion of the following:

  • attend all the Rules nights at the Old World in Huntington Beach,
  • attend one of our Fast Start clinic sessions
  • attend Umpire Certification Day,
  • attend the Advanced Field Mechanics evening training under the lights, and
  • complete two mentored games (one base/one plate as umpire) with a D62 Staff Member.
