Hello GCYAA Families!
I know that there are many questions and concerns about the Coronavirus and how it will impact our players and families with the current/upcoming seasons. This is what we know….all practices, tryouts, trainings and evaluations that were to be held at any of the schools are postponed until the schools re-open April 6th. As we get closer to that day we will have more sport specific information and updates to share. As of right now we ARE NOT cancelling any of our sports programs. Our plan is to stay updated and follow guidelines laid out by the CDC, MHSAA and other resources that are available to us. As we get closer if we need to postpone start days, practices or tournaments we will, and we will update you every step of the way. The GCYAA Facebook pages and website will be updated with that information.

For the upcoming season we will also be asking officials, coaches and players to skip the traditional handshakes. Instead we will use other forms of sportsmanship to end the games such as elbow bumps, the Wakanda Forever (crossed arms…just a little humor), verbal good games and head nods. Commissioners and coaches will be sure to fill the kids in on their plans!

We know everyone gets excited this time of year for their favorite sports to start up, we do too! And while we understand everyone is anxious for information, we just ask that you be patient and know we will make decisions as needed and communicate those decisions as quickly as we can. Our players, families and volunteers are our number one priority and every decision we make will be made in their best interest.

We will get through this and we’ll all be back on the fields/courts in no time! In the meantime, take the proper safety precautions, practice in the backyard and participate in at home speed and agility training (get the whole family involved!).

We look forward to seeing everyone soon. Until then, take care of yourselves and each other!

GCYAA

Tball, Baseball, & Fast Pitch Softball
2020 Season Information

As we all adjust to the new normal because of the Coronavirus,
we wanted to update you with our plans for the season.

Our intent is NOT to cancel the season and to proceed as much as possible in the coming weeks. As of now, we plan to move Pinto, Mustang, and Bronco evaluations to April 18. Details have not yet been determined. An update will be posted concerning these evaluations after April 5.

Phone calls from your coach for regular Tball, Pinto, Mustang & Bronco, would occur shortly after evaluations are held. As of now, the Hands On Tball Parent Meeting and the Pony & Colt evaluations are on as originally scheduled for Saturday, April 18.

Subject to any new executive orders, we plan to start the season on schedule with Opening Day on May 2. If needed, we will push Opening Day to mid/late May or early June. This would push the end of the season into July.

We will keep you all updated both here and on our Facebook Group – GCYAA TBall, Baseball & Fast Pitch Softball. 

We appreciate your patience and understanding.
