Umpiring in the ACT

Umpiring is great fun and an excellent way to learn more about the sport of softball and see the game from a new perspective.  Umpires form lasting friendships across the country and around the world, develop and improve skills that are applicable in everyday life, and earn some handy pocket money besides.

How do I start?

Becoming an umpire is easy!  Just email and let us know you'd like to join.

We'll be in touch with information about clinics or other learning opportunities, and we'll arrange for your first game.  You'll start off in the green shirt programme, where you'll be be paired with more experienced umpires and kitted out in the green trainee uniform, and given some easy games to ease your way into the job.

We'll ask you to sign up to be a SUAACT member, and each week we will contact you to confirm your availability for games and assign you matches you can handle, with experienced supervision, at the times that you allocate.
