This section establishes the criteria for selection of Championship Supervisors for Baseball Canada Championships, evaluation procedures for umpires at National Championships, and discipline policies and procedures.
To be eligible for selection as a Championship Supervisor, an umpire must have:
• Current certification as either an active or inactive national umpire
• a minimum Level 4 classification
• umpired at a Baseball Canada Championship which is at least one level higher than the one which will be supervised
• Senior or Master Course Conductor status
Lead Championship Supervisor
Each Baseball Canada Championship will have a Lead Championship Supervisor assigned. The Lead Championship Supervisor will have at a minimum been a Championship Supervisor at a previous Baseball Canada Championship and received a positive recommendation from a Lead Championship Supervisor to be a Lead Championship Supervisor.
Each Baseball Canada Championship will have at least one (1) additional member of the supervision team, which will be a combination of Championship Supervisors and/or Assistant Championship Supervisors as identified below:
A Championship Supervisor will have at a minimum been an Assistant Championship Supervisor at a previous Baseball Canada Championship and received a positive recommendation to be a Championship Supervisor.
An Assistant Championship Supervisor at a Baseball Canada Championship must meet the selection eligibility criteria as outline in 3.1 and not previously attained the Championship Supervisor designation.
Once a supervision designation is earned it will be reflected at all future Baseball Canada Championships to which that individual is assigned as a Supervisor. This means at a Baseball Canada Championship there could be any combination of a Lead Championship Supervisor, a Championship Supervisor and an Assistant Championship Supervisor or a Lead Championship Supervisor and two Championship Supervisors or a Lead Championship Supervisor and two Assistant Championship Supervisors.
