Welcome to the

Skyland Umpires Association

The Skyland Umpires Association is a organization dedicated to serving the central and northwest New Jersey areas with High School baseball and softball umpires.



Why Become an Umpire? 

Be involved first hand in the game up close and personal.  Become a positive role model to young adults.  Build relationships and make lifelong friends.  These are just a few reasons to become a high school umpire.

As an umpire, you have to deal with stress and pressure and make split-second decisions.

Are you qualified and able?  Umpiring is a very demanding avocation.

  • Are you physically fit?

  • You are constantly moving.

  • You may work outside in the elements. It can be hot, cold, and raining.

  • Are you emotionally fit?

  • Do you take criticism well?

  • Can you stay calm under pressure?

  • Can you commit time to umpiring?

  • During the season, you may need to be off work mid-afternoon

  • You will be required to study the rules both during the season and off-season to fully understand them.

How Do You Get Started?

So, you've thought about it and you're ready for the challenge.  Get in touch with the Skyland Umpires Association today using the contact form (baseball and/or softball) on this page.  Our Cadet Training Supervisor(s) will be in touch with you about how to proceed from here and provide answers to any questions you may have.
