Membership Benefits

Like any association, participation at events is paramount. The ability to learn from others including ABF accrediated instructors provide you with the best start possible. NSWBUA appoints umpires to the Sydney Major League, Sydney Winter League and through our Junior Coordinator, to NSWBL Junior League Representative levels and the World Wide Little League competition. These leagues provide active umpires with the ability to umpire at all levels of baseball within NSW. Appointments to National Championships and International assignments are made from NSWBUA members. Recently Paul Hyham was appointed to umpire in the Finals of the 2009 World Baseball Classic – an outstanding achievement. Paul is one of our most active umpires and Instructors. Monthly meetings are held to help reinforce rules and mechanics, and normally run for an hour on the 3rd Tuesday of each month. A number of seminars are run each year to assist with developing umpires. Please check our events page for more information.
