Team store is now open until the 5th of December. Please order to support the Athletics department. We offer Basketball, Wrestling, and Spirit wear items for all. Use the link below to order.


Our expectation is that our student-athletes are students first, athletes second. Our programs want to model positive behaviors and academic success. We want to build positive character and teach life skills. Rio Rancho MS is a feeder to both Rio Rancho and Cleveland High School. In order to be part of our high school programs, student-athletes must focus on being the best they can be in the classroom and in their athletic programs. Student-athletes must work hard, become a student of the game, build game speed and strength, and doing this consistently so that when they get to the high school level, they have a chance to be part of the high school athletic programs.

Please encourage your child to listen to morning announcements for information. If you have any questions you may contact me.

**Students wishing to watch inside home games will need to have a parent or guardian present to attend. This is due to the poor behavior we have been dealing with.**

Please be prompt when picking your child up after games and practices.

Any questions please feel free to contact me.
