The Hesperia Recreation & Park District is looking for people who have an interest in the sport of adult softball and would like to become an umpire.  If you’ve been a player, here’s a great opportunity to be behind the plate making those calls and being paid to do it!

Certification by the Southern California Athletic Federation (SCMAF) is required by the District for officiating in its Adult Softball League.  Beginners are welcomed, as well as those who have experience, but currently do not have their certification.

Hesperia Recreation & Park District will be hosting the 2020 SCMAF Clinic for umpire certification.  The clinic will be held on Saturday, January 11, 2020.  Attendees are responsible for paying a nominal clinic fee which includes live instruction/training by the SCMAF Umpire ‘n Chief, SCMAF Official Rulebook, testing material, and lunch.

Anyone with an interest in becoming a certified softball umpire is asked to contact the Hesperia Recreation & Park District at (760) 244-5488, ext. 123 or via e-mail at (redacted).  Further details will be provided.  Don’t miss your chance to be a part of the District’s team of softball officials!

Illuminate your holiday season at Hesperia’s Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony on Thursday, December 5th.  The annual event, presented by the Hesperia Recreation and Park District and the City of Hesperia, is open free to the public and will take place at Hesperia Civic Plaza Park, 15833 Smoke Tree Street.

Festivities kick-off with the arrival of Santa at 5:00 p.m.  The holiday celebration includes Christmas music featuring performances by youth choirs from various HUSD schools.  Children will also have an opportunity to visit with and deliver their letters to Santa.  Refreshments will be served while supplies last.  The celebration concludes with the ceremonial lighting of the Christmas tree.

San Bernardino County Fire will be at the park collecting toys for The Spark of Love Toy Drive.  In the spirit of Christmas giving, the public can support the toy drive by bringing a new, unwrapped toy for a child.

Come out and enjoy the lights, the sounds, and the traditions of Christmas in Hesperia!
