Athletics & Clubs

Studies show that students involved in extra-curricular activities grow into responsible, well-rounded adults. They learn how to work with others, accept constructive criticism, and accomplish mental and physical challenges, all while building self-esteem by participating in an activity they are passionate about.

Athletics Opportunities

At Rio Rico High School, your child has the opportunity to participate in numerous sports including football, volleyball, cross country, and basketball. For our sports, please check out the schedules on the right side of this page.

For more information about our athletics program, please contact Athletics Director John Fanning at (520) 375.8762 or by email.

Our Clubs

Clubs offer students the ability to expand their interests that fall outside the normal school offerings. From school government and environmental issues to social organizations, Spanish club, and yearbook, we have a wide variety of activities from which to choose. You may also contact Yolanda Felix at (520) 375.8716 or by email.

Athletes Moving On

Rio Rico has established a strong athletic tradition over the years. Many of our student-athletes not only excel in the classroom, but as athletes as well. The successful history of Rio Rico athletics can be seen in these athletes that have had the opportunity to compete in their respective sports at the collegiate level.

Please visit our RRHS College Athletes page for more information.
