We are happy to invite all those 14 and older and all other umpires who want to learn and make some great extra $$ to join us for training. The training sessions will be held at AJ Wilson Sports Complex where there will be 3 components to the training - Classroom, field, and live games. Trainers have extensive umpire backgrounds, including college level umpiring.
TBall / Coach Pitch / Machine Pitch session is:
Sunday, 8/4 starting at 9a and should finish around 3p, must attend entire training session.
This session is typically held for entry level umpires looking to get their feet wet and introduced into our program. Although adult umpires tend to gravitate toward kid pitch umpire training, they are welcome to attend this session.
Kid Pitch (9U - 19U)
Sunday, 8/5 starting at 1p and should finish around 7p, must attend entire training session.
This session is typically for those who have a year or two of umpire experience under their belt and feel like they are ready for the next level or those that have a vast knowledge of the game.
To participate in either or both of these sessions, please reach out to Tom Dietzman, Director of Operations, at 816-694-7012 or tdietzman@NKCABaseball.com to get on the list.
The NKCA Baseball League is a private, 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation serving the youth of our community since 1945.
The NKCA Baseball League is now in its 73rd year, established in 1945, serving the northland. Today, the league is nearly 300 teams strong (another 180 teams in the fall) with young athletes from all over the Greater Kansas City Area.
Our programs cover all levels of play, for age groups 6U to 19U, Spring and Fall. Players at 6U have the opportunity to play in TBall, Coach Pitch, or Machine Pitch. At 7U and 8U they move to Machine Pitch. At 9U, we begin kid pitch and continue to develop their talents through high school age.
We provide a great venue for players, playing on age specific fields. For teams, they can count on our league for the best field conditions north of the river, many of the administration functions such as registration and a robust web notification system. Our umpires go through a comprehensive umpire training program that includes classroom and field experience.
Our focus continues to be on the development of local athletes, increasing skills that include sportsmanship and team work.
We look forward to serving the northland youth and their families
