GNHBUA is one of the eight chapters of the Connecticut State Board of Approved Baseball Umpires. We service high school, American Legion, and youth and adult leagues in south-central Connecticut.
Our mission as Connecticut State Board of Approved Baseball Umpires is to enforce safety and fair play for everyone. We service New Haven County in all levels of play. We follow the National Federation High School (NFHS) and National Major League rules throughout the spring and fall seasons. Our customers consist of, and are not excluded to, scholastic (V, JV, middle school) Sr., Jr., Prep. Legion; along with adult leagues in south-central Connecticut and our youth programs (LL, Babe Ruth, Cal Ripken, AABC).
As an organization we dedicate our members to work as professionals, with education programs throughout the year. We hold a new-class training program every year, which consists of highly educated umpires working as instructors. We hold clinics with our membership, conducted by our rules interpreter in order to continuously educate our umpires.
GNH is a growing program that consists of more than 100 members and there is a place for anyone that would like to join.
If you are interested in becoming an umpire, we conduct training classes each January for the coming season.
