2019 Umpire Training -Correction/Update

Posted by South Milwaukee Little League on Feb 22 2019 at 03:11PM PST

Hello umpires or prospective umpires,

My name is Chris Leighton and I am the new umpire coordinator for South Milwaukee Little League. You are receiving this email because you have been an umpire in the past or have indicated interest in becoming a new umpire this year. Umpire Training is less than a month away so please save the dates below. To be an umpire for this upcoming season for South Milwaukee Little League you need to be 12 years old (little league age) and complete the training that will be starting in March.

If you are new to umpiring (1st year) or this will be your 2nd year being an umpire, you are required to attend classes beginning on Sunday, March 3. The classes will be held weekly on late Sunday afternoons/early evenings. The last class will be on April 7th.
If this is your 3rd year or more being an umpire, a 3 week veteran clinic will be offered on Sunday March 17th, 24th, the training classes will be held as follows:

6 Week Beginner Clinic

March 3 – April 7 (Sunday evenings from 6:00PM – 8:00PM)
Hosted at Zion Lutheran School in South Milwaukee

3 Week Veteran Clinic
March 17 – March 31 (Sunday evenings from 4:30PM – 6:00PM)
Hosted at Zion Lutheran School in South Milwaukee

1 Day Beginner Boot Camp

April 13 (Saturday from 9:00AM – 4:00PM)
Hosted by Burlington LL at Burlington High School

I am asking everyone to please respond to this email and let me know that you are still interested in being an umpire. In your response, please indicate if you will need to attend the beginner umpire clinic or if you would like to attend the veteran clinic. Failure to respond will result in removal from my list.

I will also be sending out an email in the near future to set up a meeting date closer to the season for all SMLL umpires. This will allow you to meet me and discuss some of the changes the League has made to its structure and rules which will affect our umpires. I will try to have a few of the other SMLL board members at this meeting so you can meet them and ask questions if necessary.

In addition, due to some medical issues occurring during games last year, I am requesting that everyone fill out the emergency contact form and waiver paperwork attached to this email. If you are under age 18, have your parents complete the form.

Umpire Emergency Contact Form

Thank you all for your understanding and if you have any questions, please feel free to call me at 4143888317 .

Christopher Leighton
