Two months before the 2022 high school football season kicks off, first-year Rio Rancho High School coach Nate Pino is holding a three-day youth camp.

For kids heading into kindergarten through 12th grade, the camp will take place Monday-Wednesday, from 9 a.m. to noon each day, and cost $85 for those registering ahead of time at Walk-up registration on Monday will cost $105.

The camp, at Rio Rancho Stadium, will be led by Pino, his staff and returning Rams players, focusing in speed, agility and strength.

T-shirts will be given to campers, who should be attired in shorts, T-shirts and cleats or running shoes. Water will be provided, although campers should bring their own water bottles. Concessions will be available.
