GYBSA halts activities

Upon receiving the news that GISD is suspending classes and all extracurricular school activities until Mon. Mar. 30th, the Groesbeck Youth Baseball/Softball Associations (GYBSA) Board has elected to follow suit with the school district.

No organized practices can be held at the Sports Complex or City Park Field in Groesbeck until further notice.

"We have also notified Brazos Valley that we are putting our 6U Girls Preseason Tournament on hold at this time,"  stated GYBSA President James Ellison. "We apologize for the inconvenience this may cause, but we feel the safety of our children and the public warranted this action." 


Heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, cancer are conditions listed by the Centers for Disease Control that increase the risk of severe symptoms by the virus. Those that are high risk are encouraged to call a doctor if symptoms develop. For those that aren’t sick enough to be hospitalized, home recovery is possible. Follow doctors’ instructions and refer to CDC recommendations for treatment at cdc.gov. Symptoms of COVID‑19 may show up from two to 14 days after exposure. Steps following symptoms of the virus depend on the risk of the individual. High-risk individuals include those that are 65 years or older, with medical conditions and have weakened immune systems. DSHS also has recommendations, statewide updates, and news at www.dshs.state.tx.us/coronavirus/.
