Umpires

Great Falls Little League depends upon umpires to officiate baseball and softball games.  Both adults and youth are encouraged to volunteer to provide this essential service. The League's umpires come from two categories:

1. Adult Umpires: Persons over 21 who have successfully completed the umpire training conducted by the Chief Umpire.  Adult volunteers perform without reimbursement.

2. Youth Umpires: Full time students, usually age 18 or younger who have successfully completed the umpire training conducted each year by the Chief Umpire.  Youth volunteers are given a stipend for providing umpiring services.


 

ADULT UMPIRES

All it takes is the desire to help our children learn the game of baseball/softball and the personal commitment to help umpire a few games a season.

Training: Great Falls Little League will provide each volunteer with thorough training and direction well in advance of your first game. The training is FREE and your umpire equipment is provided by Great Falls Little League.

Great Falls Little League is proud to have a robust Youth Umpire Program. This program supplements the Adult Volunteer Umpire Program, but we still need adult umpires!  If you would like to learn more about adult umpiring opportunities, please contact our Chief Umpire, Craig Cook  (craigccook@comcast.net). 


YOUTH UMPIRES

Great Falls Little League is proud to have an extensive Youth Umpire Program. This program supplements the Adult Volunteer Umpire Program to ensure all GFLL games are outfitted with trained and qualified umpires.  For detailed information about the Umpire Programs, please review the FAQs below.
