Umpire Incentives

To help facilitate the recruitment of new umpires and to help retain existing umpires, the A's Baseball Zone will do the following:


  • Similar to coaches in the A’s zone, the zone will pay for any certification that is required to be an umpire for players registered in the zone. This includes new umpires and returning umpires. The umpire must provide receipts at the end of the year and proof that at least 10 games have been umpired during the season in question.

  • For new umpires, the A’s zone will reimburse full baseball registration fees in the zone upon proof of umpiring at least 10 games over the course of the season.

  • For returning umpires, the A’s zone will reimburse ½ of baseball registration fees upon proof of umpiring at least 10 games over the course of the season except for players whose registration has already been reimbursed according to By-Law 5.1f).

  • This will carry through for the next year but the A’s executive reserves the right to modify or change number of games required or amount of reimbursement.

  • All fees and costs must be paid up front by the umpire and at the end of the season the umpire must provide receipts and proof that at least 10 games have been umpired during the season in question. Upon proof of games umpired (signed letter from umpires association will do) all costs incurred for certification plus A’s zone baseball registration fees will be reimbursed except for players whose registration has already been reimbursed according to By-Law 5.1f).
