UMPIRE SCREENING REQUIREMENTS
In addition to the online and in-person requirements by level, umpires 18 years and older must complete additional screening requirements in order to have their Baseball Ontario umpire certification activated.
Umpires are assigned a Risk Category by their Local Association as outlined below:
- Level 1 Risk - Umpires who are never alone with children or vulnerable individuals, and only interact on the field of play in the duty to the game
- Level 2 Risk – Umpires in the Baseball Canada National Umpires Program who are not Clinicians.
- Level 3 Risk – Umpire leaders (UIC’s, Clinicians, Supervisors, etc) who work with children under the age of 18.
Your screening requirements vary by your assigned Risk Category. Find your category below for a checklist of your requirements. If you are unsure of your assigned Risk Category, contact your Local Association.
