Umpires Program

The WSSA is recruiting umpires for the upcoming season.

Without game officials, it is the athletes and the sport program that suffers. It is critical for today, and the future, that new umpires are properly trained, each year, for all levels of competition. The role of a sport official is to ensure fair play. “If it isn’t fair, it isn’t fun."

Why be an umpire?

  • It gives you the “Best Seat in the House”
  • You get to meet some great people
  • Great part-time summer employment
  • Learn valuable life lessons

What does it take?

  • Confidence and pride
  • Hustle, physical and mental alertness
  • A sense of fair play and impartiality
  • Willingness to learn and gain experience

Experience is not required. Junior umpires will attend a Softball Ontario Umpire Clinic and will be mentored by an Umpire In-Chief throughout the season. If you would like to apply to be a Junior Umpire with the WSSA, download this application form, fill it out, and send it to umpire@wssa.ca.
