Whenever Fairfax County closes the schools on a school day due to weather, all gyms are also closed that day and evening and both games and practices are cancelled. If FCPS closes schools on Friday, then gyms may or may not be closed on Saturday and Sunday. Similarly, a closure on Saturday does not mean that the schools are necessarily closed on Sunday. The County usually makes its decision by 5 am Saturday morning for Saturday closures and often announces the Sunday decision at the same time. 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.
