Has your young ballplayer ever been interested in becoming an umpire? It's a great way to earn some extra

money and learn more about the great game of Baseball. The Nanaimo Minor Baseball Association is

looking for new umpires for the upcoming season.


NMBA will be following all the COVID-19 safety rules and guidelines to ensure a completely safe and fun environment for our young players to learn and play.

Our schedule and protocol is subject to change before and/or during the season. We will do everything in our power to keep the kids on the field.

You can keep up with all the current governing body announcements throughout the 2021 season on our website NMBA.CA

NMBA is looking to train all Umpires - ages 11-55.

The first year or U14 umpires who are eligible for the rebate from last year can apply it to their membership for this year.  The membership fee for individuals over the age of 13 is $65.

This year we will be holding the classroom sessions (rule interpretation) of the level 1 and 2 clinics online due to social distancing restrictions.

There will be an online National Superclinic hosted by BC for:

  • Level 2, 3, 4 and 5

Approximately 8 dates between Mar 6 to May 1.

BCBUA hopes to have a UIC resource for you this year, which will include a 4 to 5 session practice program, and take into consideration the gym drills done at the past clinics.

At this time, the dates of the Umpire clinics will be coming out soon!
