Scripps Ranch Little League Umpiring
Scripps Ranch Little League offers one of the best youth umpire programs in Little League. If you're not already involved, we invite you to become a part of it. The program provides umpiring opportunities each year to school age youth during both the regular Little League season (March-June) and Fall Ball season (September–November). SRLL youth umpires get to develop a sense of responsibility, learn the rules of baseball, and earn money. The purpose of this page is to provide you with information about the program, including instructions on how to participate.

Who is Eligible to Umpire for SRLL
You must be league age 11 or older (for the spring 2016 season you need to be 11 years old on May 1, 2016)
You must live within Scripps Ranch (92131 zip code)
You need to be willing and able to develop the following personal attributes:
  • Ability to handle responsibility (being reliable, on time, and prepared)
  • Maintain a high level of concentration and focus for extended periods of time
  • Willingness to learn the rules of Little League baseball, and the skills to apply and enforce these rules as an umpire

Carry yourself in a manner that reflects positively on the SRLL Youth Umpire Program (confident, assertive, respectful, and respectable)

Commitment
Generally, an effort will be made to distribute game assignments equally amongst the umpires; however, we will also try to accommodate known conflicts and preferences. Once schedules are established, umpires are responsible for fulfilling their assignments.  

A Note on Communications
We have the capability to send mass mailings which greatly simplifies things but may result in some of the communications ending up in your spam folder.
