Become a baseball or softball umpire in Ponoka and ear between $35 and $60 per game

Umpiring is a great way for youth, teens and adults to get involved with ball games.  A lot of umpires are often current or former players and coaches. However, no baseball background is required to pursue certification as an umpire and it's a great way to make some extra cash. 

Individuals must be a minimum of 12 years old in order to start working towards their umpire certifications. 

The amount an umpire gets paid per game depends on the category of ball, the age division, the caliber/level, their level of certification and the umpire's role (home plate or bases).  The Ponoka Minor Ball Association follows the umpire fees established by each of the provincial organizations which varies from $30 - $60 per game.

Along with umpiring individual league games, local umpires often have the opportunity to umpire in local tournaments.
