Welcome to LTJBSA!

Lawrence Umpire Academy is a great way for adults and students age 13+ to earn money while spending time on the baseball and softball field.

Our Cadet Umpire Training course covers the basics in umpiring and controlling a youth softball or baseball game. You’ll learn the rules and how to apply them to real game situations. Taught by NJ District 12 adult umpires with over 20 years of professional experience,  you’ll be certified to work Lawrence Little League games by the end of training.
