NBSA Umpires

NBSA is always looking for candidates interested in umpiring in Northville.

No umpiring experience is necessary, however prior baseball/softball experience and or knowledge is required. Over the course of the 2-day clinic, prospective umpires gain an understanding of the rules of baseball/softball and learn proper positioning and umpire technique. To be considered an umpire for NBSA, an individual must attend the 2 day course and successfully pass a written and skills assessment.  This clinic is typically held in February.  Information about upcoming clinics will be posted here.

Umpires meet during the season, usually on the weekend for additional training sessions.   Individuals should be at least 14 years old at the start of the season to umpire.  If under 14, they would be considered with a letter of recommendation from an NBSA board member, coach, or umpire supervisor. 

We teach the kids the rules, how to interact with adults as an authority figure, and how to run a clean game.  Umpires are only scheduled when they state they are available so there is tremendous flexibility and higher wages.

2021 Umpire Clinics


NBSA will be conducting a preseason umpire clinic, and all umpires must attend before being considered for the 2021 season.  As you might expect, due to Covid we will be doing things a little differently this year.  Our first clinic will be specifically for our first ( new) and second year umpires and is limited to 50 people. Umpires with three or more years and/or existing Travel umps will have a clinic at a later date TBD.  


The clinic will be held in (2) parts, or sessions.  The instructional classroom portion (session 1)  will be held virtually. The on-field mechanics (session 2 ) will be held in person at Dbat in South Lyon.  The cost of the clinic will be $20.00 per person total and covers both sessions.   Everyone must pre-register.  NO WALK INS. Prospective umpires must attend both sessions to be considered for the 2021 season.
