Rice Athletics is committed to excellence in and out of the classroom.  Our program is based on a foundation of commitment to working hard and getting better every day!  From the girls’ program to the boys’ program, we encourage all athletes to participate in as many sports as possible, knowing that the more participation you have, and the more competitive the environment.  This allows us to move towards our goal of advancing beyond district and reaching for the greatest possible outcome each and every season. 

Our coaches and faculty are here to encourage, motivate, and guide these young women and men to become the best classmates, teammates, and leaders possible.   All of this is made possible by the full support of the Rice ISD administration, School Board and community that wants the absolute best for our children.
