Message from The Chief Umpire

Hello SCLL managers, coaches and families! My name is Nick Schaefer and along with being a San Clemente Little League parent, I'm on the Board as the Chief Umpire.  As you are all by now well aware, SCLL can't function without a cadre of volunteers at a myriad of positions, specifically, umpires. It is my goal to provide the necessary training and information to all of the volunteers so that we can provide our kids with the best learning environment possible. As an umpire you are responsible for the management of the game and to be the biggest advocate for good sportsmanship on the field. We want our players to compete at a high level throughout each of the divisions and our umpires play a major role in that success. Thank you all for volunteering your time both on and off the field!

Division A: Umpires cover their own child's games.  No points awarded/necessary for A. The 
visiting team provides a plate umpire, the home team provides a base umpire. Must have 2 umpires to start a game and all potential umpires still need to be trained and have a background check.

Divisions AA-AAA-Majors: Team points are determined once the teams are formed and the amount of games has been established. Six (6) points will be awarded for the plate umpire's team and four (4) points will be awarded for the base umpire's team. It is imperative that managers find umpires to cover their games so that SCLL will not have to enforce any penalties as stated in the local rulebook.
