We Need Umpires!


Having officials makes the game much more enjoyable and fair for all. Please consider joining the team!


Thank you to those who have completed the required background check. Here is important information about the 2024 little league season.

Opening Day:  March 9th, 2024

Umpires Clinic:

  • Saturday, February 24th 10-11 am at Santos Field (Soto Sports Complex)
  • The umpire clinic will review little league rules and basic umpire mechanics
  • We encourage novice or new umpires to attend. If you want to attend but cannot make it then let me know and we can meet one-on-one.
  • Attendance is not required, but if you are new to umpiring or AGVLL you and I must talk before you umpire your first game.

Game Days, Times & Locations:

  • Intermediate & Majors games are played on Tuesday, Wednesday and Saturday.
  • Minors games are played on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday (with a few Friday Night Lights games)
  • Midweek games will start at 5pm from March 9 to April 5. 
  • Midweek games will start at 5:30pm after April 5.
  • Saturday games start at 9am with games running every 2 or 2 1/2 hours depending on the division.
  • Intermediate games are played on Don Roberts Field
  • Majors games are played on Santos Field
  • Minors games are played on Pilg Field


  • If you don't have your own equipment then the league will provide new umpires with your own mask, ball bag, plate brush and clicker.
  • Each score booth at the fields has two sets of shine guards and chest protector. These can be used for the game and returned to the score booth after the game.

Umpire Pay:

  • Over the years the league has had a mix of volunteer and paid umpires, depending on the division and need. Starting this season we will pay umpires in all the divisions. Pay will depend upon division and if the game is umpired solo or with a two person crew.


  • If you wish to not be paid then please let me know.
  • Check are processed every two weeks and mailed out.

Livescan Fingerprinting (NEW):

  • Livescan Event info coming soon. AGVLL will cover the fee.

Background Check:


  • Once the game schedules are made, our Umpire in Chief will email out a Sign-up Genius that will list all the games for the season. You will then have the opportunity to sign up for specific games.

We cannot have a successful little league season without umpires. Thank you for umpiring for Arroyo Grande Valley Little League.
