Junior umpire program


The Sammamish Little league Youth Umpire Program helps increase the involvement of neighborhood youth in the game of baseball, increase a participant’s knowledge of the rules of the game, and enhance our community’s volunteer umpire resources. Active participation in the program can result in either community service learning hours or monetary compensation. The ultimate goal of this program, like all Little League programs, is to give kids the opportunity to learn, succeed and be rewarded in a challenging but safe environment.

Youth Umpires are between the ages of 13-17. Sammamish Little League provides training, equipment and rule books. The program currently covers the three highest levels of baseball and the two highest levels of softball. Youth Umpires cover both field and plate positions for Coast and AAA games. They are in the field for Majors games with a Senior Umpire behind the plate.
