PARTICIPATION REQUIREMENTS

Welcome and thank you for your interest in Rio Rancho Public Schools Athletics! Rio Rancho Public Schools value the important role that athletics plays in contributing to the overall high school experience. RRPS is pleased to announce the launch of our brand new Athletic Physical Packet submission site. Physical packets will now be submitted by visiting the Athletics Documents Upload Form.


Please be aware that you must have ALL required documents in order to submit this form and be sent to the clearance Que at your respective school.  Once received, your school's athletic department will review them for accuracy.  Provided all documents are complete, your student will be cleared and you will be notified via the email address you’ve provided during submission.  If cleared, your student will be placed on the 20-21 Athletic Clearance list at his or her respective school and you will need to do nothing further for the 20-21 school year.  If your documents are not complete or there is a question regarding the submitted documents,  you will receive an email via the email address you’ve provided during submission stating the issue or question. 


The NMAA has granted permission for student athletes to use their 2019/2020 physical for the 2020/2021 School year, however if you have more recent physical documentation please submit that instead. Even if you submitted 2019/2020 physical documentation last year, you will need to resubmit it again this year in order to be cleared.
