KBA Houseleague Rules
Who can be an Umpire?
Men, women, boys, and girls are eligible to learn to be KBA umpires. KBA provides training and assistance with equipment abd your games can be used towards volunteer hours.
There is always a need for older, more experienced umpires (aged 17+), however, we do require some younger umpires as well.
Umpires are eligible to ump up to a maximum of one level below the division in which they would be eligible to play. Applicants should be turning 13 years old this year or over to qualify. You do not need to be a registered player to be an umpire.
Please see our Umpire Training page for details on any upcoming training sessions.
