2015 Umpire Registration

2015 Umpire registration:

Memo from Nick Zibelli to all prospective baseball umpires for 2015 season:


Obligations of the umpires are as follows:  

Umpires must attend one of the sanctioned pre-season clinic/meetings conducted by the CBUAO or NCAA.  The CBUAO will sponsor a clinic/meeting or meetings at a date and time to be announced.   NCAA clinic attendance is only mandatory for umpires wishing to be considered for NCAA D-I, D-II, or D-III regional tournaments.  Umpires attending any of the CBUAO approved meetings will be eligible for regular season and post-season assignments assigned through the CBUAO.



Umpires must pass an online rules exam conducted by either the CBUAO or NCAA prior to the start of the season.  Passing grade on the CBUAO exam will be 80% as in past years.  There is no initial cost to the umpires to take the CBUAO rules exam.  Should an umpire not pass the exam after 3 attempts, a fee will be charged for further attempts.


All umpires must complete an annual profile and submit an annual registration fee.  The 2015 fee remains at $60.


Umpires are not required to be a paid member of Arbiter or any other organization to be eligible for regular and post season assignments from the CBUAO.  However, the NCAA requires Arbiter membership for consideration to Regional Championships and beyond in D-I, D-II, and D-III.


*Only registered umpires are eligible for 2015 assignments.  If you did not return a signed Independent Contractor Registration Form and wish to be considered for assignments contact
