-First rainy day is a Safety Day. Participants will watch videos about water safety and upper levels will watch stroke performance videos.
-Second rainy day will be used to practice and review safety and swimming skills and remaining classes will be extended 5 minutes
-If there are three or more rainy days, class will be made up on Fridays.
