League Information

Sechelt Minor Softball provides umpires for Mite, Squirt, PeeWee, and Bantam games wherever possible. All umpires operate under the direction of the Umpire In Charge, who is a member of the Board. Rules are in accordance with Softball BC, which is a member of the Western Canada Softball Association. Rules are generally consistent the world over, as defined by the International Softball Federation, Softball Canada, the Western Canada Softball Association, Softball BC, Sechelt Minor Softball, and so on. However, each area typically introduces some of its own variations, under the Special Operating Rules of that association. The Special Operating rules of an organization are generally outlined on its web site, as are those of the Sechelt Minor Softball Association. It is the umpire´s job to interpret and uphold those rules, in the interest of fair play and safety. There are always those who would like less stringent rules, and those who would like more stringent rules, and we are continually reviewing all aspects of our program to try and find the best balance for this community.
 
Sechelt Minor Softball is an amateur sports program. Our players, coaches, scorekeepers, board members, and umpires are brothers, sisters, mothers, fathers, sons, daughters, community members, and so on. This is not the Olympics, or World Championships. Umpires are a favorite target of derision, and even professional, Level 5, world class umpires do make mistakes. However, they do not make any more mistakes, and often less, than the coaches, players, and spectators. We expect all participants to behave with dignity and respect, and will stand firmly behind our umpires, as they do their best to provide opportunities for youth in this community to have good old fashioned fun playing softball in a safe and respectful environment.

Sechelt Minor Softball, in combination with Gibsons Softball, provides opportunities for umpires to receive training and certification as carded umpires. We want to thank everyone who took the training session last year. Please contact us if you are interested in attending the next umpire clinic.
