Welcome to the official web site of the Northwest Baseball Umpires Association. The NBUA is responsible for the training, development and administration of baseball umpiring in the Seattle and greater King County, Washington area. The NBUA officiates nearly 6,000 games per year, encompassing many youth and adult leagues and the only umpire association based in King County that works high school games. We are a member of the WOA (Washington Official’s Association), sanctioned by the WIAA (Washington Interscholastic Activities Association.) We can offer you a great training experience, on the field support, and a one-on one mentoring program. This is a great way to earn extra income and get close to the game. We are always looking for new umpires, no experience necessary. If interested in joining or simply looking for more information, provide the information on the “JOIN THE NBUA” form. More information can also be found in the New Umpire FAQ on the INFORMATION menu.
NBUA is an elite sports official’s organization that helps to affect positive change in the youth sports community in the State of Washington.
We deliver the highest quality service to our customers by umpiring all games to the best of our ability and with fairness to all participants via state of the art training and evaluation and demonstrated examples of inclusion.
