A date is being planned for an Exam Review Session for all BOMBA Level 3 Umpires. Details will be provided once the exam is posted.

Returning from Absence

Anyone who is returning from an absence of more than 2 years should contact the UIC to see what options are available to you. Various programs have existed within Baseball Ontario to allow for re-entry to umpiring without necessarily having to start at Level 1.1 again.

Umpire Parent Meeting

BOMBA has historically held a meeting for all New Umpires and their parents. This is designed to give you a review of our online booking system called “Ramp”, introduce you to your contacts and to review responsibilities and ask questions.

A revision is being made for the 2024 season. As BOMBA roles out the new equipment program, we will be in touch with all newly registered umpires regarding a date for the Equipment handout and the general information.  

More specific details will be sent to you before your clinic.
