Ballwin Athletic Association's umpire program is run by members of the Board of Directors.
All umpires new to umpiring and/or to the association are required to attend the testing and training sessions prior to each season. Testing and training for the Spring/Summer season is held in late February and early March. Testing and training for the Fall season is held at the end of July. BAA does accept experienced umpires throughout each season.

- Knowledge of the rules
- On field performance (positioning, presence, form, handling of situations
- Promptness (to ball park and to field)
- Being respectful at all times (to managers, supervisors, other umpires....at all times)
- Neatness (uniform and umpire room)
