About the event
Umpire Accelerated Course
At the end of this five virtual session and one on field session we expect you to be certified a Level 2.3. We hope that after taking this course that you are inspired to umpire for your local association!
- As you know, the five virtual sessions will be held on March 5, 12 and April 2, 16, 30.
- Each online session runs from 7-9:30 pm
- We realize that March 12 is the first weekend of March Break. As such, for those that are unable to attend that night, we are planning on running a make up session on March 26.
- We have two on field sessions set up with more to be added shortly now that we have an idea where participants are from
- There will be four Baseball Ontario Instructors each week
- Blair Hains, Chris Wilhelm and Justin Snively-Topping will teach each week with a guest instructor joining the crew
- All instructors are Baseball Canada and Baseball Ontario Master or Senior Course Conductors with many national championships under their belt
- During the online session, we will use a variety of teaching techniques, including videos, polling, direct teaching and group work
- This course is participatory – you will get more out of it, by putting more into it!
- There will also be a limited amount of “homework” each week
- It is important that you have a good internet connection
- Please join from a laptop – there will be materials that are portrayed on the screen, including videos, text and presentations that will not be able to be seen on a small screen
- You will at times be required to be on camera – please make sure that your camera is working
- When you login, please do so with your full name (first and last) and not with a screen name of first name only
BEFORE WEEK 1
- You will receive an email on Sunday morning with Login details for the clinic
- Be prepared to login a few minutes before the start of the clinic
- Please take the opportunity before Sunday to review the pre-clinic material
