Santa Cruz Valley Unified School District No. 35 (SCV35) is excited to announce the addition of Robbie Moen as the new Middle School Sports Performance Teacher.  Moen will provide sports performance classes for Coatimundi and Calabasas Middle School athletes.  The classes will help athletes develop and improve skills designed for their sport.  

Moen’s sports career has spanned three decades, beginning in high school where he was named Arizona’s student/athlete of the year.  Some of his accomplishments during his college career include 1991- Team Leading Hitter- .402, All Six-Pac Designated Hitter, 1992- Part of Six Pac Conference Champion Tea, Honorable Mention All Six-Pac Outfielder, and 1993- Team Leading Hitter.388 at the University of Arizona.  Moen has coached at the high school and college levels across the globe including teams in Kansas, Florida, Texas, Moscow, and Arizona.

In addition to the Sports Performance position, Moen will also serve as the athletic Coordinator at Coatimundi Middle School and will assist Coach Jeff Scurran with the Rio Rico High School football program.  Scurran and Moen have a history together. Scurran coached Moen at Flowing Wells where he received All-Conference recognition in both football and baseball.

“I have played and coached for several sports.  Student/athletes do not learn and respond the same, so my job is to get to know them and see what style works best for them,” said Moen. (See sports resume below)

"Our coaching staff has hit the ground running connecting with our players and parents towards the main goal.  In just a short amount of time with the players we have this summer, the program has installed new systems that change the way we think about the game of baseball at Rio Rico.  We are developing our own style of play this offseason to make the strides we need to in order to compete in the 4A conference come February.  I am extremely proud of the work we have put in thus far in our strength program as well as on the field.  It's Time to Fly!”
