Looking for a part-time summer job with loads of flexibility, good play, and a chance to help out young players and Troy families?
TBB has openings for boys and girls age 14 yrs and older interested in working as umpires.
TBB leagues use simplified rules for younger players to help them learn the game and be successful. As players advance, we add new rules for pitching, hitting and base running to increase the challenge. By the time players reach Bronco league (14 and up), they're playing with full high school rules.
This same philosophy benefits TBB umpires as well. All new umpires start out umpiring in the youngest TBB leagues so they can gain experience and confidence while applying a simplified set of rules. Coaches provide feedback after every game so the umpire knows what areas of the game they need to improve on to progress to the next level. Umpires with the most experience are selected to work in the upper age group leagues.
Pay is scaled to match experience. Umpires with the most experience, working games in the upper age groups with more complex rules, are paid more per game then new umpires working in the younger age groups. Likewise, umpires working games behind home plate are paid more than umpires working in the field.
TBB provides preseason training and education to help you learn proper positioning and techniques for becoming an effective umpire.
It's a great way to make money and help Troy kids be better ball players!
