Impact of School Evening Cancellations on Friday 2/12
Update: 3:00 PM Friday 2/12

GAME AND PRACTICE CANCELATIONS FOR FRIDAY 2/12

Fairfax Public Schools has canceled all evening activities at the schools for Friday 2/12 due to the possibility of snowfall in the early evening. As a result, all CYA house and travel practices or games on Friday at the schools are canceled. As for the two travel teams scheduled to practice at Nova Field House tonight, players on those teams should check with their coach to see if practice will be held, as that facility is expected to remain open. If those practices at Nova FH are held, parents should use extreme caution in getting to the facility.

POTENTIAL SATURDAY GAME CHANGES AT CHANTILLY/OAKTON/HERNDON

The school closure tonight could affect our high school boys and girls games on Saturday at Oakton, Chantilly and Herndon if the HS varsity, JV and freshman games scheduled for tonight get moved to Saturday afternoon or evening. The auxiliary gyms at Oakton and Herndon may remain available, but the main gyms at Chantilly, Oakton and Herndon could be affected. At this point we have not been informed by the high schools or Recreation Dept. what will happen at the high schools on Saturday; as soon as we know, we will send out a notice. Check this website tomorrow morning if you have a Saturday game scheduled at one of these 3 high schools.

CYA NIGHT AT OAKTON

This closure has also impacted the CYA night scheduled at Oakton for tonight (Oakton vs. Westfield). The Freshman and JV games have been canceled and the varsity game moved to 4:30. All CYA players wearing their jerseys who are accompanied by an adult will be admitted free of change to the varsity game at 4:30.

Spring Basketball Program 2016 (grades 4-12 only)

SPRING 2016 HOUSE PROGRAM (BOYS/GIRLS GRADES 4-12 only)

Online registration for the CYA Spring House Basketball Program will began in January 2016. Registration fees for the House program are $165.00 for grades 4-8 and $175.00 for grades 9-12. Incorporated into these registration fees is a $20 CYA admininstrative fee, a $10 fee for the CYA indoor facilities capital improvement fund, and the $5.50 Fairfax County user fee (to repeat, these fees are included in the registration fees listed above). Non-county residents pay an additional $30.00 as the Fairfax County user fee for non-residents is $35.50. For the AAU registration fees, see below. 

The deadline to register without a late fee is now March 1st. Beginning March 2nd a $25 late charge is assessed on all registrations. To ensure placement on a team, you must register by March 15th. All registrants after March 15th will be placed on a wait list and placed on a team only if space permits. NOTE: Due to Fairfax County rules, a $30 user fee is assessed on any out-of-county registrants.

CYA’s house program is open to all applicants in grades 4-12 regardless of skill level or place of residence. Those who participated in the Winter travel program or played for their High School teams are eligible to participate in this house program. Most leagues in grade 4-8 have a weeknight practice and a weekend game for the first few weeks and then go to a weeknight game and weekend game for the remainder of the season. High school aged players have a single pre-season practice then go straight to games only (weeknight and weekend games).

The season will start in early April and will go until early June. Skills assessments for grades 4-8 will be held in mid to late March. Games are anticipated to begin the weekend of April 9-10th for most leagues. There will be no games or tryouts during Spring break.

For more information, see the Frequency Asked Questions page or send an email to the registrar (Cindy Aune) at registrar@chantillyyouth.org.

SPRING 2016 AAU PROGRAM (GIRLS AND BOYS GRADES 4-11)

While there is no Travel program in the Spring, CYA does have an AAU program for both boys (grades 5-10) and girls (grades 4-11). These players pay a $275 base registration fee (part of which is allocated to tournament fees) and then a supplemental fee depending on how many AAU tournaments they participate in and the cost of those tournaments. They are also required to purchase their uniforms. Players on these teams practice twice a week and play in up to 6  local tournaments over the course of the AAU season.

Tryouts for both the boys and girls 2016 programs will take place in late February to early March. The coordinator for the AAU girls program is Craig Ballam (sports@theballams.name) and for the boys program is Shubha Johnson (shubhajohnson@verizon.net). Check the CYA Scheduling website (http://cyabasketball.assn.la) for the tryout dates. If you are interested in coaching an AAU team, please contact Craig Ballam or Shubha Johnson.

CYA Inclement Weather Policy

Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS) or individual school authorities can close the school gyms due to inclement weather.Whenever FCPS has announced that the schools will be closed for the whole day or closed early due to weather conditions, then all school gyms  are closed on that day and all CYA practices/games at the schools are cancelled.  FCPS also makes decisions starting Saturday morning on weekend game use. However, a school closure for weather reasons on Saturday does not mean that the gyms will automatically be closed on Sunday. FCPS makes separate determination for Saturdays and Sundays and post this on their website each day.
 
It is the primary responsibility of each coach to determine whether the school gyms have been closed because of inclement weather andto alert the members of his/her team. Parents can also get information about school closings for themselves. This information can be obtained by watching the FCPS channel 21 (Cox, Comcast and Verizon), by going to the FCPS website (http://www.fcps.edu/news/emerg.shtml), or by checking the FCPS Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/fcpsva) or Twitter .Coaches and parents are encouraged to sign up for the FCPS Keep In Touch message service that can broadcast information both to an email address and a cell phone (http://www.fcps.edu/kit/). This service will alert coaches to school closings due to weather orother emergency situations. In addition, coaches should check their e-mails on nights prior to game days or in the mornings on game days if it is or has been snowing.
 
Neither Nova Field House in Chantilly or the new Hoops Plus facility in Sterling follow the FCPS gym closure guidelines. Instead, game cancellations at these facilities due to weather are decided upon by the CYA Basketball Board in consultation with the facility staff and the officiating organization. This information will be posted on the CYA website. You can also check the website of the Nova Fieldhouse (http://www.novafieldhouse.com) or Hoops Plus (https://www.hoopsplus.net).

As soon as CYA receives information about weather-related cancellations at the schools, Nova Field House or Hoops Plus, these announcements are posted to the Basketball page of the CYA website (www.chantillyyouth.org/basketball) and to the CYA Basketball scheduling website (). CYA will also endeavor to send out a mass e-mail to all CYA participants from both the CYA main website and the scheduling website. In certain circumstances, CYA may cancel games on the weekends due to unsafe driving conditions even if FCPS or Nova Field House/Hoops Plus have not yet made a decision to close their facilities.

Bottom line: On days when it is snowing or significant snow or ice is on the ground, you should check for any school closures or Nova Fieldhouse/Hoops Plus closures before leaving for your game. If it is snowing or sleeting and facilities are open, parents should use their best judgment about whether to take their child to any scheduled game.
