Cold weather, poor road conditions, and forfeits:
There is no FYSA poor weather or road conditions policy . Parents and coaches must determine for themselves if they wish to participate. There will be no designated degree of coldness or other climate difficulties at which games or practices are automatically canceled.
Games are always played as scheduled and will not be rescheduled if a team forfeits for any reason.
Due to gym availability games that are forfeited for any reason will not be rescheduled. If you know that your team will not be participating in a scheduled game or practice; please e-mail the FYSA office as soon as possible. A cancellation to the school requires a 3-day notice (workdays).
