Hillside Little League - Omaha, Nebraska

Our Umpire Program

Every spring and summer, the success of Hillside Little League (HLL) depends on many people working together to make the over 300 games at our fields run smoothly and be enjoyable for the players, coaches, parents and fans. Critical to that success are the umpires who manage the games, with officiating opportunities from as early as 10am and as late as 10pm some days!

Due to a nationwide shortage of trained umpires, HLL focuses on recruiting umpires from among our active players, former players, local high school/college players, coaches, parents, etc. to cover all home games for both baseball and softball. We supply umpires for the Minor League (10U), the Major League (12U), the Reserve (14U-baseball) and Jr/Sr (18U-softball) levels between Opening Day through Little League post-season tournament play.

Each game needs at least one plate umpire who is knowledgeable, loud, confident, mobile and comfortable making difficult calls when necessary. We understand being an umpire can be challenging and intimidating but our pay is among the best in Omaha ($15-$45).
