LOOKING FOR UMPIRES FOR SOFTBALL!!
As we get real close to the season , we wanted to reach out to everyone again with the reminder regarding our clinic in Red Deer on April 14th and 15th, 2018.
In summary – we are in need of umpires in Innisfail we need 3 – 4 [I need to confirm the boys are coming back], Sylvan Lake 5 [we often have players umping so we need to figure this in to our total numbers], Lacombe 3 [as far as I know at this time again we often have players umping so more umpires help with the scheduling of games].
The real issues / shortages we see at this point are in Red Deer (10 ) and Stettler( 10 ) in fact, in both these locations the situation is looking really serious.
Adult umpires – we could use 5 for Ladies and 5 for Men’s. For adult umpires starting out we get them doing bases at this level and plates at a minor level until they are comfortable with their plate game. Our main concern is making sure no one gets hurt. We expect mistakes and at this level of ball so do the players. The key to our MEN’s and WOMEN’s games is working with a senior umpire to get started and comfortable.
Please talk to your son or daughter and ask them if they would be interested in becoming an umpire this season! RDSUA commitment to new recruits is phenomenal. All new umpires will be paired with a mentor to help them through the season. It is a fun way to make some extra money this spring!
