The clinic will also re-certify umpires that were certified last season, and cost to register is $55.
The second clinic will also be held on April 29th, but will be for Level 2 Baseball Canada umpire certification.
This clinic is for already certified Level 1 umpires that have completed their Level 1 phases and Level 2 umpires re-certifying for the 2017 season.
The cost to register for this clinic is $65.
Both clinics involve in class and on field instruction. Total time will be around 6 hours length.
The Clinics will take place at DRCSS.
