When deciding about closings or delays due to inclement weather, the JCC takes into consideration the safety and security of both members and staff.

  • When Marion County and/or the City of Indianapolis declares an emergency and closes roads except for emergency vehicles only, the JCC will be closed–the facility, programs, and any rentals.
  • Individual programs may have specific policies for inclement weather.
  • Parents of children in our early childhood education program and afterschool care programs may subscribe to a mobile app called Remini.
  • Our youth sports programs and our youth and adult tennis program follow Washington Township School District for delays and closing.
  • For example, if Washington Township Schools have a delay until 10 am, then any tennis classes, including adult tennis classes, with a start time prior to 10 am will be considered canceled and a make-up or refund assigned.
  • For weekends in which Washington Township Schools are not open, please refer to the JCC’s overall weather policy.
