Information and FAQ

In 2022 we are introducing a new assignment system.  Here is the key information you need to know and answers to some FAQ.

From any of these links you will see a menu on the left side to choose all the other options.

FAQ

Q: I see games listed but I cannot choose any of them for assignment

A: You will see all games but you will only be able to self assign games that are a) not already assigned ; b) eligible for you to choose.  It is normal to see games that you cannot choose.


Q: I have a TeamSnap account for my team but that doesn't work

A: TeamSnap for teams and TeamSnap for umpiring are seperate systems.  Umpiring is using TeamSnap Tournaments, the logins are seperate.


Q: Are there any things I need to know about the new umpiring scheduling system?

A: Yes!   Because this is a tournament management system you will see some artefacts of that including emails coming from “Kitchener Minor Baseball Tournaments” and schedules online that look a lot like tournament schedules.   We are working with TeamSnap to continue to work on having this as a regular league function but the capabilities we can get now are worth some of the oddities we may see.


Q: How will communications work?

A: Whenever there is an event (a new assignment, you have self assigned a game, you cancel your assignment, game time or venue changes etc.) you will receive an email from the system with the changes.  It is critical that you pay attention to these emails and that you read them when they come in.  Communications regarding changes will be automated as changes are made in the system and you will be notified through system generated emails.  Do not expect individualised emails, text messages or phone calls notifying you of changes or assignments.  You have to pay attention to emails and check your assignments dashboard regularly.


Q: What training do I need to complete and where do I do that?

A: You can see the Umpire Certification Level System here to understand the levels and how they work.  Adult umpires must also complete several other requirements that you can see here - Adult Umpire Requirements.   Online training is available by registering for a Baseball Ontario Umpire Clinic.

If you are new to umpiring you need to do online Level 1 training.  If you are a Level 1 umpire, you need to do the Level 1 training again.  If you have umpired for 2 years, you can do Level 2 online training
