The Killeen Parks and Recreation and Harker Heights Parks and Recreation have canceled the 2020 Central Texas Youth Sports League softball and baseball season.

On Monday, Governor Abbott announced his reopening plan, which included limiting outdoor athletic events to no more than four participants.

The departments say the decision is consistent with Texas Public Schools and the University Interscholastic League (UIL) cancellations of all spring classes and sporting events.

All registrants will receive a full refund by mail to the address used at registration within four to six weeks. The departments say if that address has changed, contact your Parks and Recreation Department as soon as possible to update the information.

Killeen and Harker Heights are exploring alternative programming for the athletes missing out on the sports season.

To update your address or for more information, please contact Killeen Parks and Recreation at 254-501-6390 or Harker Heights Parks and Recreation at 254-953-5657.
