LEAGUE GAMES ONLY AT THE YMCA

The Columbia Ravens will make use of the Howard County Schools policy as input but not as a sole decision maker. The schools often close much earlier than the YMCA. We will use YMCA guidance as well. We will post this policy on our website, email the coaches, as well as make every effort to post cancellations two hours prior to the start of the games that day to the front of our site.
