The American River College (ARC) athletics program was ranked fifth in the state of California - second in northern California - according to the final 2021-2022 rankings for California Community College Athletic Association institutions. The rankings are part of the annual NATYCAA Cup , established in 2004 to recognize excellence in two-year college athletics based on success in championship competition across all sports.

The National Alliance of Two Year College Athletic Administrators (NATYCAA) is a professional organization open to all two-year institutions throughout the country. NATYCAA Awards are designed to recognize and reward overall program excellence at the two-year college level. In the NATYCAA Cup, colleges are awarded points based on their teams' final positions in post-conference competition.

ARC scored 129 total points in 2021-22. Multiple sports reached state championship competition in 2021-22, including women’s volleyball, men’s soccer, men’s tennis, men’s track and field, men’s swim and dive, men’s cross country, women’s swim and dive, women’s water polo and women’s tennis.

ARC has consistently finished in the top 10 since the NATYCAA Cup began in 2003-04, ranking as high as third on several occasions.
