SFLL umpires needed
Sierra Foothills Little League is offering interested individuals, age 12 and older, the opportunity to work this season as a baseball umpire. Umpiring will be a part-time job that provides evening and weekend work opportunities.
In addition to providing hard-working individuals the ability to earn money, umpiring for SFLL is a great way for individuals to take responsibility, to be assertive, to work cooperatively with peers and adults, and to give back to the community.
Umpires can earn $40 per game for umpiring behind the plate or $20 for the bases. For more information, contact volunteer@sierrafoothillsllb.com.
