Payment Procedures

Below are some important details regarding Payments for games worked by FVB.

IHSA Contests:
All schools will pay you directly, some at the field, some in the mail up to a month later.  It is the umpire's responsibility to track all payments and ensure they have been paid.  Please wait 3 weeks before contacting the school, and when you do, please use the utmost courtesy.  If no luck after that, contact Jeff Collis and he will ensure you are paid.  For NSC/NLCC games, it may be a little longer, just be patient!!!

Varsity:  $65 Single; $110 DH

2021 Summer HS and Travel Ball:
Most non-school programs pay FVB and FVB pays our umpires.  We will do Arbiter Pay paymets weekly as fast as the collected funds clear the account.  There are no guarantees on weekly payments, but we will do everything we can. If you choose not to be paid thru Arbiter Pay, we have five pay periods, and below is a targeted payment schedule for games paid thru FVB.
