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

Bill Lem (Umpire)


Spring is just around the corner and so is 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

Those wishing to umpire are encouraged to contact our umpire in chief Trevor Sharpe umpireinchief@tcthunder.ca. All umpires new and returning must be registered with the BC Baseball Umpires Association (bcbua.ca). Umpires are required to attend a BCBUA clinic every year to help improve your skills and adjust to any rule changes.

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.
