Level O Umpires Course (Baseball)
It is Greenway Giants club policy that all Baseball coaches must be certified to Level O standard. Fortunately, the NSW Baseball Umpires Association are running a couple of courses over the coming weeks, so sign up now.
Note that the club fully subsidises the cost of attending such courses, so the only investment required for budding umpires is the time such courses take. Parents and eligible Junior Blues, please take this opportunity to support the club by becoming qualified to umpire your child’s games.
For more information and to register for an upcoming course, please see the NSW Baseball Umpires Association home page, noting that your club is the Greenway Giants, playing within the Ryde Hornsby Baseball League. This will enable NSWBUA to invoice us for your participation.
Greenway Giants Junior Blue Program
Did you know that there are opportunities for both junior Softballers and junior Baseballers to become qualified umpires?
Baseballers who are eligible to play in U14 or U16 age divisions are invited to be part of this program, which involves receiving training (fully funded by the club), and being mentored by more senior umpires until such time as you can umpire your own games. Best of all, for every game you umpire throughout summers, you will receive a free drink and free sausage sandwich from the Greenway Park BBQ.
Becoming an umpire will improve your knowledge and enjoyment of the game, and assists the running of competitions across the club. See elsewhere on this page for details of upcoming courses.
