2019 Umpire Training and Testing Announcement

Updated Friday March 22, 2019 by Mike Cahill.

Umpire Training Dates...

We have three umpire training sessions set up for the 2019 CYC baseball/softball season. Attending one of these three training sessions is mandatory. The format and presenters for these sessions is different than what we have done in past years. The sessions will run 90 minutes and there may be a 30 minutes district/parish specific session after the 90 minute training session. 

Umpire Clinic Dates and Locations:
  • Sunday, March 24 at SMMA--South County    7:00--8:30 p.m.
  • Sunday, March 31 at St Peters Kirkwood--South Central  7:00-8:30 p.m.
  • Saturday, April 6 at St Joseph - Cottleville St Charles 9:30-11:00 a.m in the Parish Hall

Attendance at just one of the training sessions is necessary. It will be helpful if the trainees would review the rule books before attending the training.

Here is the link to the 2019 online umpires test:

If you do not have a google account you may need to set one up. You can set an account up using any email at the following link. You need to score an 80% on the test and you have two attempts to reach 80%. You are welcome to use the rule book during the test. Please read the questions carefully before answering the question. Thank You for you interest in becoming a CYC Umpire and Good Luck

Each umpire trainee and returning umpires are required to successfully complete the on-line umpire test. 

The 2019 CYC baseball and softball rule books are posted below. A flyer with information on a free umpire training opportunity in South County is attached. Some additional helpful aids are listed too. The "Fair or Foul Quiz" is NOT the online umpire test.
