San Francisco Little League is a youth baseball program for residents of San Francisco age 6-14. Youth umpires are used in the majority of our kid-pitch divisions. Games are played at fields across the City on weeknights (usually 5:30) and all day on weekends. SFLL has a strict policy prohibiting disrespect and abuse of umpires.
Candidates for the youth umpire program must be willing to meet the following requirements: Youths age 12-17 are eligible to be paid for umpiring after attending our mandatory training sessions. Returning or otherwise demonstrably experienced umpires between the ages of 18 and 22 who are still students may also be eligible for our paid program at the league's discretion. Youth umpires can only umpire games involving players younger than themselves.
You Must be at least 12 as of April 30, 2017 to be eligible to be an umpire.
Youth umpires are paid $30 per game ($45 for Intermediate and Juniors division baseball games). The program is an excellent way to develop leadership, responsibility, and confidence. Umpires who show commitment and dedication may be eligible for letters of recommendation.
