TCOLL  Umpire Mission Statement

We hear at TCOLL  run an Umpire's program for both new and  experienced umpires. We teach new and experienced umpires the way a game should be called in Little League Baseball. We plan to hold trainings throughout the year as needed for new umpires and for umpires who are interested in more training.  Our goal is to teach young umpires the proper methods of calling a game while keeping the spirit of Little League in mind.

Our Umpire in Chief is Mr. Chris Palomo.  If you are an individual seeking training to be an umpire please contact him at
