Weather and gym cancellations

CYA Policy for Schools and Hoop Magic Facility

GENERAL GUIDELINES

Whenever Fairfax County closes the schools on a school day due to weather, all school gyms are also closed that day and evening and both games and practices are cancelled. If FCPS closes schools on Friday, then school gyms may or may not be closed on Saturday and Sunday. The County usually makes this decision on Friday night.  Even if the County does not close the schools, in some cases on the weekends the CYA Basketball Executive Committee may decide to cancel games for safety reasons.

IMPORTANT NOTE (Hoop Magic): The Hoop Magic Sports Academy, where all the games of all high school grades are held as well as some house and travel practices, does not follow the FCPS guidelines. CYA Basketball and the Hoop Magic staff will decide if and when games or practices scheduled at Hoop Magic are to be cancelled due to weather. That information will be posted here so in the event of a snow or ice storm be sure to check this site for information about the status of Hoop Magic games and practices.
