RMHS Athletics Mission Statement

The Athletic Department serves as an integral part of Rio Mesa High School, and its mission is to provide an opportunity, through athletic competition, for students to develop physically, socially, intellectually, and emotionally. At Rio Mesa, athletics is viewed as an extension of the classroom in which student-athletes learn to strive for excellence in an atmosphere of teamwork, sportsmanship, and respect.

Athletics Policies

Student-athletes at Rio Mesa High School must be academically eligible with a GPA of at least 2.0 and passing at least 20 semester credits. They must be well-behaved at all times and realize that athletic participation is a privilege, not a right. They are to be always respectful to teachers, coaches, officals, opponents, and classmates. In addition, Rio Mesa High School’s student-athletes are expected to be drug and alcohol free.
