January 23, 2017

I am pleased to announce the names of the umpires selected to represent B. C. at the 2017 Canadian and WCSA Championships. After reviewing the applications submitted, the PODC have selected a group of umpires they feel will best represent B. C. at each championship. This group of officials works hard to be the best that they can be.

There will be further opportunities for B. C. umpires to work at Canadian and WCSA Championships this year as we are hosting the U16 Girls Canadian Championship in Delta, U18 Girls and Boys WCSA Championship in Richmond and the Master WCSA Championship. More names will be added to the list as I am asked for fill-ins as we approach the time for the tournaments.

Please join me in congratulating the following umpires:
