Welcome BCBUA Officials
To those new to our Association we extend a hearty welcome and to those returning we say welcome back.
We hope to make it as simple as possible for everyone this year by loading all of the available games on the Umpire Calendar webpage of our website and each junior and senior umpire can advise which games you are able to work…..since all games (excluding make-ups) are posted well in advance we will not be using the “first-come/first-serve” method - we will maintain parity and fairness as best as possible.
Games are available for scheduling up to 2 weeks in advance. When you see a game displayed on the calendar, click on it. If names are already assigned to the plate and base slots - that game is full. If the Plate of Base slots are empty, that game is available and ready for someone to step up and volunteer. To volunteer, email the scheduler at: email@example.com. You will be notified by a confirmation email if you have been assigned to a game.
Expected dress code for officials can be found under the Umpire tab on the AMBA website and for ease we have pasted the link to the Umpire Calendar below.

Opening Day - Saturday, April 8th
The season is upon us and we need to kick it off with our Annual Opening Ceremonies.
When: April 8th, 11:00 am
Where: Devon's Diamond
(upper North East diamond with lights)
Please arrive no later than 10:45 am and meet along the first base side outside the fence by the batting cage with your team. All teams will enter the field with their teams in their respective divisions. We will line up behind the pitchers mound facing home plate where there will be a dignitary from the Township of Langley to throw out the First Pitch, the Canadian Anthem and a few words from our President.
We would like all of our players and coaches to attend in their uniforms. Mosquito, Tadpole and Rally Cap games will start after the Opening Ceremonies commence.
Prior to the start of this, we will be hosting our Annual Pancake Breakfast in the Field House from 8:30 am to 10:30 am. By donation. This was a huge success last year and is a great way to meet your fellow AMBA families.

Yes, our kids' sports suck up all of our free time. Yes, our kids' sports make our lives and schedules crazy sometimes (OK, most of the time). Yes, our kids' sports keep getting more expensive. Yes, it's a pain in the butt to leave work early to drive home, then drive back across town so our kids can be at their ball game at 5:00pm, a half hour to 45 mins before it begins.
But in the blink of an eye, our kids won't be kids anymore. They'll be driving themselves or getting rides with buddies to practices and games. Then all of the sudden, we'll be left with a huge void in our lives and the only thing that will occupy it is the constant question running through our minds... "How did it go by so fast?"
So, embrace every crazy, annoying, inconvenient and expensive moment while you can.
Remember to try to "see the game through the eyes of the kids". It will make your time at the park that much more enjoyable.
