This program is being supported from a grant awarded to the Vancouver Hawks, and is intended to support all VWFHA members from any club.

The umpire and mentor development program is for anyone with a desire to learn how to umpire and for umpires who wish to mentor aspiring umpires. League members who are interested in learning how to umpire will be partnered with a knowledgeable mentor and both the umpire and mentor will be paid for their game assignments.
