The kids need Umpires more than ever! Central Alberta Softball Umpires Association puts out the call for help
From the Central Alberta Softball Umpires Association (CASUA)
Become a Softball Umpire
The Central Alberta Softball Umpires Association (CASUA) is looking for new umpires to join their crew in 2023.
With a regular season and tournament schedule that gets underway in early May, CASUA is actively recruiting new umpires to cover minor games hosted by associations across the region.
CASUA works with minor associations in Softball Alberta’s Zone 4, and northern Zone 2.
Communities covered include Didsbury, Olds, Innisfail, Sundre, Elnora, Trochu, Delburne, Red Deer, Sylvan Lake, Blackfalds, Lacombe, Ponoka, Bashaw, Clive, Bentley, Rimbey/ Bluffton, Stettler, Camrose, Castor, Coronation and Consort.
Umpiring is a great part-time job for youths (12+) or adults looking to earn at least $30 for a ninety-minute game.
Regular season games are held on weeknights in May and June, and weekend tournaments offer the chance to work anywhere from 6-10 games in a weekend. In addition to earning money, umpiring provides the chance to develop personal leadership skills such as decision making, communication and dealing with difficult situations.
Without umpires, players would face the prospect of having people pulled from the stands to officiate a game where they are unfamiliar with the rules, diminishing children’s learning and enjoyment of the sport.
And then there is the worst-case scenario of not having anyone to officiate meaning “without umpires its just recess.”
Umpires are required to complete a certification clinic prior to stepping on the diamond. This year, the theory portion of the clinic will be offered online, followed by an in-person mechanics clinic.
Mentorship is offered by senior umpires to help new officials skill development.
Currently, a choice of four in-person mechanics clinics scheduled in April:
Saturday, April 1 in Rimbey
Saturday, April 15 in Red Deer
Sunday, April 16 in New Norway
Saturday, April 29 in Castor
Registration fee for new umpires is $100, which includes membership with CASUA, Alberta Softball Umpires Association, Softball Alberta and Softball Canada, insurance, rule book, the clinic (including lunch), a mechanics manual, and an umpire shirt.
For more information, or to register as a softball umpire, check out the CASUA website at www.casua.ca, or email [email protected].
