To join the Contract division, a new member must be accepted to JUA membership, pay JUA dues and complete applications and pay dues to applicable sanctioning organizations such as ASA, AABC, Babe Ruth, NSA, etc. A game-by-game assigning fee is also collected by the booking commissioner. JUA Contract division provides field and rules clinics for newer umpires every Sunday starting February and ending in March as well as one in September. In-depth training for this division is required for the first two years at a nominal cost.
