MVUA takes pride in believing that the MVUA is the strictest baseball umpires association in the region. We take pride in knowing that coaches and players often notice an MVUA umpire and how we differ from the others. We always require our members to dress smart and hustle. The MVUA provides quality patched, certified umpires to cities and towns of the Merrimack Valley of Massachusetts and New Hampshire.
All MVUA umpires undergo a rigorous training program and are certified by the MBUA. MVUA umpires umpire games in Mass and N.H. at all levels – College, American Legion, High School Varsity, JV, Middle School, Freshman, Babe Ruth, AAU, and Little League. In addition, to remain in good standing, all MVUA member umpires must pass an annual written rules exam and attend MVUA clinics on rules, issues, mechanics, and game procedures.
All umpires are also evaluated both behind the plate and on the bases during a live game. These training and development programs ensures that the member umpires of the MVUA meet the highest standards of umpire professionalism.
