COVID-19 Statement

For Games

As most of you know, our gym is located in Titus County which is currently under the Governor's mandate for face coverings (disposable paper masks, cloth masks or face shields). You may be wondering how that applies in the case of sporting events. The Texas UIL which governs sports in public schools gives this guidance:

  • If you are 10 or older, wear a face covering upon entry to the building unless

    • You have a medical condition or disability that prevents wearing a face covering,

    • Any other exception to the Governor’s Order.

  • If you are 10 or older, wear a face covering in the stands unless

    • You are consuming food or drink,

    • You are at least 6 feet away from the next family/group,

    • You have a medical condition or disability that prevents wearing a face covering,

    • Any other exception to the Governor’s Order.


-Please screen your player and family before each game by following these guidelines.

-Entrance and exit only doors are marked. Entry door will be the main door usually used. Exit door on opposite side of concessions.

-Everyone must leave the building immediately after the last games.

-No kids allowed to play with the balls or on the court in between or after games

-No team water coolers or water fountains. Drinks sold in concessions.

-Hand sanitizer is available at various places in the gym. Please feel free to use this.

-Volunteers working in concessions are required to wear masks with no exceptions. Please consider this when signing up for volunteer spots.

-Volunteers working the volunteer positions of gate, bookkeeper and scoreboard are required to wear masks unless they fall under an exemption to the Governor’s face covering mandate issued July 2, 2020. Also, we have received conflicting guidance from TASO, the organization that provides the officials for our games, on whether or not they require masks at the scorer’s table with no exceptions. Please be aware that this guidance may change during the season.
