How to Schedule Yourself for Games 

 

Umpire Password Reset

Please watch the instructional video link below if you’re having problems signing up for games. More than likely your game signup trouble is you’re logging in in your adult/guardian account and not as the youth umpire. The below video will show you how to reset the junior Umpire’s password and login as the junior Umpire.

If your child’s league age is incorrect please fix their birthdate when you are changing the password.
