FAQ's

Where can we acquire Rule Books?
BCBUA and Baseball Canada will NOT be printing Rule Books this year as it has been determined that our new/younger umpires are all "digital" and don't even look at the paper copies we have handed out in the past. Therefore digital copies can be located on Baseball Canada's website: www.baseball.ca then look across the top for Programs, dropdown to Umpires. Within the Umpire section you will find the Rule Book, Canadian Content, Canadian Interpretation along with the 2-Man, 3-Man and 4-Man Positioning Manuals.

Lost my Login Username to Register with BCBUA, how do I acquire it?
Submit an email request to Les, our BCBUA Secretary, at lemaerov@gmail.com to retrieve your Username.
UIC Training?
The BCBUA has created a UIC Training deck and is organizing a UIC Training Courses in the future, which we are requesting ALL UIC's take. More information will be forthcoming on this but right now we are concentrating on getting the Registration underway and umpires registered for their online clinics.
Fee Structures?
The Fee Structure: $35 if age 13 or under as of December 31st 2021, $65 for all others. Level 1 and Level 2 Clinics are Free with Registration. SuperClinic is $50.
Level 1's who registered last season but did not get any games?
Level 1 Umpires who notified BCBUA before the deadline, earlier this year, will have last year fees transferred to this year.
I am having trouble registering for a clinic, who should I contact?
We are expecting lower than anticipated enrolment numbers and wish to advertise in community groups, high schools, etc to raise interest, is there a job description for umpiring?
There is no real job description to umpire but we would suggest something like:

Do you love baseball? Can you make quick decisions with limited information? Do you have thick skin? Can you describe your observations in a clear manner that allows others to understand why you made a decision as you did? Do you want to know the rules better than anyone on the diamond? Then Umpiring should be in your future. Earn money while having fun, staying in shape and being part of the Third Team on the Diamond. Umpiring builds character. Umpiring builds friendships. Umpiring allows you to see the game we love from a whole new and exciting prospective. Accept the challenge and become an Umpire.
