District 33 Umpire-in-Chief


As a Little League® umpire, you serve the children and families in your community and gain a deeper knowledge of, and appreciation for, Little League. Once you start officiating games you gain an entirely new perspective on the role umpires play in the Little League experience. District 33 is committed to supporting our leagues' efforts to recruit, retain, and reward volunteer umpires. While some leagues consider paying umpires, we firmly believe that volunteers are a better choice for our community. Volunteers are more committed to their league and the mission of Little League, and care more about Little League rules and safety regulations.

District 33 has umpire staff formed of volunteers from our leagues led by John Perretta, District 33 UIC. They are available as a resource for rule interpretations and training. Please invite them to your league to work games with your umpires. We are here to serve you!




  • Join the D33 umpire email list and stay up to date on training, events, and tournament info. Note: a free Gmail account is required. You can create a Gmail account with your a non-Google email address.
  • The Little League Umpire Registry is a place where you have access to an assortment of training materials, including live webinars. For a $5 fee you can conduct a background check using the registry and easily share it with every league that you wish to volunteer at.

D33 recommends that our umpires use the current MLB replica umpire shirts in black (with gray side panel) and blue (with black side panel). This will help you to match your partners for a professional look.

Black with Charcoal Grey
Sky Blue with Black

Traditional Little League umpire shirts are great for new umpires or if you're on a budget. They're also available from most local sporting good stores.
