USSSA Umpire Training Clinic

We’re looking to train umpires ages 14 and up!

When: Monday, December 19th from 5:00 PM to 9:00 PM
Where: Big League Dreams Jurupa Valley
10550 Cantu-Galleano Ranch Rd, Mira Loma, CA 91752


My name is Paul, and I’m the Chief Umpire for USSSA baseball in Southern California. Our umpires officiate almost 8,000 youth travel baseball games each year at the Big League Dreams facilities in Chino Hills, Perris, and Jurupa Valley, as well as many other parks in the area.

As I’m sure most of you are aware, there is a severe shortage of officials in all youth sports across the country. Many of the officials that are working are beginning to age out of the business.  That’s where we need your help!  We are looking to recruit and train talented and passionate people that want to earn a little extra cash as an umpire for USSSA…moms, dads, guardians, brothers, sisters, athletes and more!!  All we ask is that you be at least 14 years old, have a passion for the game, and be committed to continuously improving at the craft!  You must also have a social security number and bank account.

We have games available in the evening during the week and all day long on the weekends.  We are also extremely flexible with your schedule and availability.  You can work as much or as little as you’re comfortable with.

For all those interested, we have a mandatory umpire clinic scheduled for December 19th from 5:00 PM to 9:00 PM at Jurupa Valley Big League Dreams. If you plan on attending, please RSVP to [email protected] or (951) 870-1686.

Thank you very much for your time and we hope to see you on the field,

SoCal Baseball First Umpire Association….we’re the primary source of quality umpires for USSSA So Cal/Baseball First. We officiate USSSA tournament games at ballparks across the Inland Empire and Orange County nearly every weekend of the year. Our most utilized fields are the Big League Dreams Parks in Chino Hills, Perris, Jurupa Valley and West Covina.

Our primary goal is the consistent and accurate application of our modified OBR rule set…a very close second is our responsibility to enhance our “customer’s experience” during the time they spend at our games and on our fields. Each team we officiate pays a great deal of money to participate in a USSSA tournament and 30-40% of that tournament fee goes directly toward compensating the umpires.  It is important we provide value for their investment.

It is our mission to provide an atmosphere of continuous improvement for our officials. This includes executing proper two man mechanics, learning and understanding our modified OBR rule set, the proper application of our rule set …and yes…how to provide excellent customer service!

If you’ve got experience umpiring at any level using the OBR rule set, click the link below and send us an email describing your experience, the city you live in, what your availability is and whether or not you have any limitations.

Thank you for your interest.
