Inclement Weather

Updated at 6:00 PM on Friday, February 16, 2024

    1. NO NVJCYO GAMES at any gym will be held that were scheduled for Saturday morning (before noon), Feb 17 due to inclement weather/county closures.
    2. NO GAMES that were scheduled for Saturday at any time at Our Lady of Hope or St. Theresa in Loudon County will be held.
    3. At least one and probably more of the counties have indicated that they will be re-assessing the situation tomorrow morning as to whether they may change their status for the afternoon--stand by in case the counties close.
    4. As of right now all Sunday games are still a go.
    Drive safely and please remember it is always the parent/guardian who must make the decision for themselves and their child as to whether to drive/attend, regardless of whether a game is still schedule to be played.
