In addition to providing hard-working students the ability to earn money, umpiring for Glenview Youth Baseball is a great opportunity for students to learn to take responsibility, be assertive, and to work cooperatively with their peers and adults.

Umpires must have work permits and attend GYB umpire training.

How to Get a Student Work Permit

You can not get an employment certificate online. They are issued by your school. Follow the steps below.

  1. Obtain a "Letter of Intent to Hire" from your new employer, Glenview Youth Baseball (download below). The letter should list the hours you will be working and what duties you will be performing.
  2. Take the letter to your school. You will request to see the school administrator (issuing officer) responsible for issuing Employment Certificates. Remember to be nice to this person and say please and thank you--they're helping you, so be respectful!
  3. Receive the certificate. The administrator will review your letter to ensure that your job is safe and that the hours won't conflict with school schedule. If everything is fine, you will be issued an employment certificate. Give this certificate to the GYB Umpire Chairman.
