We suggest that you attend one of our umpire information meetings and basic training clinics. This is the quickest and best way to prepare you to get on the field and working.
Pre-season clinics are usually available from late February thru early April each year. You will be able to learn more about clinics and other Metro events on the "Assignments" page.

Officials who wish to umpire during the high school season must register with the Minnesota State High School League. This is required for officials who will be working either baseball or softball.  To learn more about registering as a high school official, contact the Minnesota State High School League at

You can contact us by phone at 651-485-1339 or via email at
