In association with the Hamilton District Baseball Association (HDBA), the HBUA is proud to announce the creation of three supplemental umpire training dates over the off-season.
The date, time, and location of the programs are as follows:
Saturday March 16: 1pm-3pm, Calvin Christian School
Saturday March 30: 4pm-6pm, Calvin Christian School
Tuesday April 2: 6:30pm-8:30pm, St Eugene Catholic School
These clinics are FREE to all HDBA/HBUA umpires. These sessions are not intended as a replacement for attending a Baseball Ontario Umpire Clinic, but rather basic training to help build confidence in our newer umpires and shake off the rust for veterans.
Participants MUST register in advance for these programs – click here to do so. Walk-up registrations will NOT be permitted.
In order to reach out to as many umpires as possible we ask that you register for only one of these sessions.
Lastly, newly hired Minor League umpire Matt Blackborow, product of the HDBA/HBUA system, will be in attendance at all three sessions. Eastern League (AA) umpire Chris Marco will also be attending the April 2 session as an instructor.
