Adult Umpires Needed. Apply Today!

Background

Historically, Tuckahoe Little League has engaged a professional umpire association to provide paid adult umpires for its Minors (AAA) through Seniors divisions of play. Due to a labor shortage, the umpire association informed TLL (as well as other youth leagues) that it will not be able to provide umpires for the 2022 spring season. As a result, TLL is recruiting its own pool of paid umpires for the spring 2022 season. 

Who may serve as an umpire? 

Anyone age 18 or older and who has completed the TLL umpire training program may serve as a paid umpire. Parents, Grandparents, former players, managers, board members, community members, and anyone who wants to help make the game successful for Tuckahoe families are welcome to serve as TLL umpires.. All adult umpires must complete a volunteer application form which is submitted for a background check through Little League International’s partner, JDP. 

How much are umpires paid?

Umpires are paid: 

  • $50 per AAA or Majors game (+$15 if behind the plate)
  • $60 per 50/70 or Seniors game (+$15 if behind the plate) 

Umpires are independent contractors and will be issued a Form 1099.

How do I register to serve as an umpire?

Please complete the umpire registration form found at https://forms.gle/z3M219mLJfRmchqW6 

Is there training?

Yes. The TLL Umpire in Chief will hold training sessions in advance of the spring 2022 season. Umpires are required to attend one training session. 

Must I provide my own equipment?

Umpires calling from behind the plate are responsible for providing their own equipment to include: shin guards, plate armor, mask with dangling throat guard, cup (if applicable), and plate shoes. If you do not have equipment, you may call balls and strikes from behind the mound. 

How will I know when I am scheduled to umpire?

Game assignments will be made using the online ArbiterSports Official Assignment Software. We will schedule as far in advance as umpires can give availability. How many opportunities are there to umpire? Generally, there are games six days a week on multiple fields (6, 7, 8, 9, and 10). So there are plenty of opportunities and needs for umpires.
