The Community Umpire (old Level 0) program has been completely re-designed and covers the basic knowledge and skills required to umpire a game. To obtain national accreditation, recognised by Baseball Australia, as a Community Umpire the following requirements must be met:
The online components and the online assessment can be done at your own pace. The practical session will be offered on an as-needed basis once a number of umpires have completed the online components or the practical game assessment can be arranged in consulation with the State Director of Umpiring.
The usual cost for this program of $15 is being paid for by Baseball SA. This means there is no cost to you. Registration includes a digital copy of the 2017 Official Baseball Rules. You may choose to purchase a pocket-sized printed version of the rule book for $25 which will include rule updates over the next two seasons.
