Umpire Certification Clinics


Umpire Clinics Available in 2023

2023 Level 1, Level 2, and Refresher Umpire Clinics *Level 3 Clinic to be determined*

In addition to meeting the online theory requirement, you will also need to register for an in-person mechanics clinic (3 hours). You can take the training in any order (e.g. take the mechanics clinic before the theory clinics and the online theory sessions in any order). In-person mechanics clinics in your region will be posted shortly.

**NEW FOR 2023 (Coming late-February 2023)

Recorded Online Theory Sessions. Five self-paced, pre-recorded sessions for Level 1 and Level 2. Completion of an online quiz after each recorded session will be required to meet the theory component for certification. You can mix the pre-recorded sessions along with online theory sessions together.
