Starkey Little League

Content

The Starkey Little League mission is to develop major league people. Organized under Little League since 2021, Starkey LL offers youth in the Odessa/Trinity area baseball and softball leagues and tournaments for ages 3.5 to 16.

Starkey LL is a volunteer member organization consisting of board members, committee members, and Managers.  Volunteers are needed and essential to assist with our baseball and softball leagues.  Please do let us know how you can volunteer with us to support the youth programs.

If you need to contact us, send us a quick email. We’ll reply as soon as possible to your inquiry.

For most questions and concerns you’re encouraged to contact your team manager directly. Once your player is rostered or drafted to a team, your team manager becomes the central contact for league information. Reference your Team Site for schedules as well. Teams are encouraged to stay together from Tee Ball to our oldest age groups. Returning players that are friends can have very positive experiences and produce a compatible player / parent / manager ball team.

The best way to follow the activities of Starkey LL is this website’s homepage. We list all of our announcements, activities and game day updates. We also post a limited number of updates and social media related content on Facebook. 

Participation in Starkey LL is open to all youth of ages 3.5 to 16. Players must live in our boundary or attend a school that is in our boundary. Before signing up, please verify to make sure a player is eligible to participate by going to Little League Finder to identify the league’s boundary that the player resides or attends school. The Starkey LL boundary is between Starkey Blvd and Suncoast Parkway, North of Rt 54. It includes the 3 communities: The Preserve, Asturia and Starkey Ranch. Students of Starkey Ranch K-8 are also eligible to participate with Starkey LL regardless of where they live. 

If you would like to send us feedback, we welcome it. Stay positive and let us know what you can communicate to help out this volunteer organization.

Our mailing address is: Starkey Little League, 3152 Little Road Suite 153, Trinity, FL 34655

There are many reasons we believe Starkey LL is THE place for kids to play spring and fall ball. We believe our core values set us apart from the other leagues in the area and our approach and facilities offer the premier place to play baseball and softball.  If you are interested in becoming a volunteer member, please register here. All volunteers will be required to complete a non-credit background check.

Where we play

BASEBALL
Our home field is Starkey Ranch District Park (1800 Lake Blanche Road, Odessa, FL 33556). We will be predominantly playing on fields 4 and 5. We have extra practice space "field 6" and access to one of the new batting cages. This is where all baseball practices will be held and where co-ed T-Ball and AA Rookies will predominantly play games. Pasco County has scheduled many softball tournaments on the new fields, so our backup location (and where Minors+ games will be held) is WH Jack Mitchell Jr Park (4825 Little Road, New Port Richey, FL 34655). There we have access to 3 diamonds.

SOFTBALL
Due to restrictions by Pasco County Parks & Rec, all Little League softball will be at our WH Mitchell Jr softball complex (4825 Little Road, New Port Richey, FL 34655) where we have access to 3 diamonds.
