Operation Sunshine: In Full Swing.

Operation Sunshine has launched. With nearly 130 registrations, volunteer Campus REC staff have stepped up to the plate to deliver FREE swim lessons to Tucson's youth victimized by the sudden closing of a local swim school.

Designed and organized within a few weeks, Operation Sunshine is providing five different levels of classes over a four-week period.

Many thanks goes to the commitment of the volunteer aquatics team for their time, expertise and willingness to support the local community.

Campus REC's Aquatics offers lessons throughout the year for youth and adults in both private and semi-private settings. Find out more today!

Student Employee of the Month for July

Congratulations Jesus!

Jesus is a Tucson native and a double dipper. A double dipper because he is not only a supervisor for Campus REC sports during the academic year, he is also an "A" Camp counselor for the summer. Following in his sister's footsteps by working at Campus REC, Jesus is going into his junior year studying mechanical engineering.

His nomination for the award stated: "Jesus has been the most charismatic camp counselor out there. I have seen him daily while picking up my kids and his charisma and happiness shine right through. Jesus is constantly playing with the children in A-Camp and they truly see him as a role model. He has given way more than anyone could expect!

Thanks Jesus for all you do!

University of Arizona Cycling Club Team Wins
2022 USA Cycling Collegiate Road National Championship!

Strong team effort results in year-end national #1 ranking.

The UArizona Cycling Club captured the national championship this past May 6-8 in Augusta, Georgia and ended the year ranked #1.

Truly a team sport, where the top four finisher's scores are tallied for both men and women, they participated in three road events: time trial, road race and criterium. Adding these road scores to the other four types of races—cyclocross, track, BMX or mountain—held earlier in the year, led to their #1 ranking.

The team consists of eleven riders: Cara, Shelby, Mary, Stephanie, Alexis, Joey, Ethan, Nikos, Nick, James and Finnley. Congratulations to all and Bear Down.
