Baseball Umpire Training

Rum River Umpire Association 2023

Learn to be a baseball umpire (or upgrade your skills). New umpires have earned anywhere from $300 to $6,000 (or more) over the spring, summer and fall (note: income earned is dependent on game availability). RRUA supplies umpires at ages levels for high school, middle school, traveling and in-house games. Classes cover a variety of topics: baseball rules (including the finer points), effective game management, and dealing with different scenarios. Classes consist of a total of five two-hour sessions and a single outdoor training. We use the NFHS 2023 Rule and Case Book (included with class fee).  Minimum age is 13.
