"The best umpired game is the game in which the fans cannot recall the umpires who worked it"

Bill Lem (Umpire)


It's now time to think 2023 and the game of baseball. Enjoy the game?? Become an umpire and get paid for officiating the sport we love. We are always looking for the next generation of officials who show desire and enthusiasm while at the same time being rewarded for his or her efforts.

Those wishing to umpire are encouraged to check the website of BC Baseball Umpires Association (bcbua.ca) for registration and clinic information. All Umpires must be registered yearly with BCBUA and attend a clinic to help improve your skills and adjust to any new rules.

For new umpires, you must register first and then go to the clinics page. If renewing a previous
membership, have your membership number available. Registration fees will be reimbursed for all Umpires who are registered players for Tri-City Thunder. If you’re not a registered player you must umpire a minimum of 5 games to be reimbursed.

If you have any questions, comments or situations you wish to discuss, please don't hesitate to
contact Trevor Sharpe (UMPIRE-IN-CHIEF) via email at umpireinchief@tcthunder.ca

This is a great way to learn new skills, make new friends and give back to the sport and the Association.
