Upcoming SBU Training Meetings:

SBU Conducts pre-season classroom based training meetings for new and veteran umpires on Sunday afternoons during the months of January, February and early March. Unless otherwise indicated, the meetings will take place at The Hive (Spokane Public Library) at 2904 E Sprague, and begin at 2:00 and end at 3:45.  (We do encourage folks to arrive a little earlier to help set up the room and socialize before starting the meeting officially.) Note: A security code is required to enter the building and that code will be sent out via email to all active umpires prior to each meeting.

NOTE: Notes (with links) from each training meeting can be downloaded by clicking on the topic description for each meeting.
