If you have a local league and wish to umpire your own games, great! We also offer training to your prospective umpires on Softball Canada theory and mechanics. This way you are assured that you have properly trained umpires officiating your games.

Alberta is proud to boast one of the best Umpire programs in the country. If you are interested in learning a new avenue of the game of softball, we are always looking for interested individuals. Each year, there are Umpire Clinics held throughout the Province. Alberta is divided up into 8 zones / 10 branches, which all partake in the execution of successful softball events throughout the season.


The Canadian officiating program is recognized as the worldwide leader in training and performance. Softball Canada umpire activities include the certification process (Levels 1-5), specialized learning materials and publications and professional development opportunities at all levels.
