Extracurricular sports programs teach the important values of sportsmanship, cooperation, and teamwork. Our goal is to promote friendship, provide leadership opportunities, and help students develop a positive attitude through athletic competition.

Mission Statement

The mission of the San Simon Athletics Department is to provide an athletics program that extends the learning experience beyond the classroom. The Indians athletics program strives to develop student-athletes socially, mentally, and athletically, and to encourage leadership, responsibility, teamwork, and sportsmanship. The interaction between student-athletes on the playing fields teaches student-athletes the value of working together as a team and the use of proper competitive spirit. Good sportsmanship and fair play are developed in an atmosphere of mutual respect on and off the playing field.


San Simon Athletics is part of the Sonoran Desert League Conference. We invite students to participate in one or more of our seven after-school sports programs—it’s a great way to spend your time!

Extracurricular activities contribute to the positive climate and culture at our school. As such, we expect student-athletes to meet eligibility standards. 

  • The eligibility criteria for student participation is a passing grade in all classes in which the student is enrolled, and students must maintain progress toward promotion or graduation. 
  • To monitor eligibility, we check grades every two weeks, progress reports, and quarterly grade reports. In some instances, three weeks may pass due to 10-week grading periods. We will post an eligibility schedule/calendar before the beginning of each school year.

Athletics Standards

Participation in the San Simon athletics program is an honor and privilege for our students. Students who participate in athletics have the opportunity to develop their athletic abilities and leadership skills both on and off the playing field. 

We expect our student-athletes to act in a dignified and mature fashion. Athletes will learn to win with class and lose with dignity. They will respect their peers, coaches, and teachers. 

We recognize that actions are a reflection of who we are. Our actions can majorly impact the entire team, school, community, and especially the Tohono O’odham Nation.
