PBSF Youth Umpire Program

Piedmont Baseball-Softball Foundation Umpire Program Background:

  • The Piedmont Baseball-Softball Foundation annually trains and hires Piedmont students to umpire Pinto and Mustang games.

  • All prospective umpires must attend two training sessions taught by professional umpires before they will be allowed to work for the league.

  • The training sessions lead to a thorough knowledge of the rules of the game, and an understanding of correct field positioning for all game situations, proper dress, pre-game conferences, and the importance of being prompt and prepared.

It is the Foundation's goal to provide umpire training that will give students the opportunity to:

  • Learn and improve key umpiring skills

  • Develop the confidence necessary to apply the rules of baseball in game situations

  • Play an important (and fun) role in supporting youth baseball in Piedmont.

Youth Umpires: Text


To be eligible to be a youth umpire you must be in 6th grade or higher and have the time available on weekends to work baseball games. Younger umpires will generally work lower division games to build experience and confidence. Baseball experience is preferred, but not required.


Anyone wanting to be a youth umpire must attend at least one Zoom session and one on-field training session.
