The City of Tucson closed all its fields Friday due to the rain. 

One team didn't let the rain stop its practice. The Bears, a flag football team for kids under 10-years-old, laced up their cleats and ran drills in the rain to practice for their game tomorrow. 

"I think it's useful for them to see that if they sit and wait and do something else inside they are missing out on actually gaining an advantage over an opponent by coming out here in this rain," said John Reyes, the team's volunteer head coach.
