Starkey Little League




The tee ball division is for players who are league age 4 - 5 only.  This division prioritizes one-on-one time with volunteer coaches.  The purpose of tee ball is for players to learn the fundamentals of baseball and youth sports team activities.

Games will be played primarily Saturdays with the occasional weeknight games.  Coach / Friend requests are granted up to team roster limits. 

Parents, SLL is typically seeking team managers for this division.  If you feel you can offer knowledge and structure for this age group, please indicate when registering.  Our league offers a coaching coordinator to assist with lessons and drills make practice fun but educational.  A league official will reach out to discuss in more detail.  The more volunteers we have the more these tee ball player’s benefit.
