The Rifle Club was started in 1995 with the goal of exposing students to the safe handling of firearms and to offer a sport for those students that may not be your typical athlete. They started with 22 rimfire rifles, but the cost of the specialized equipment meant they had to keep their membership numbers low. They switched to "Across the Course" matches and are very competitive at the national level. Desiring more student participation, the club now shoots "F-class", which is a much more precision-oriented type of competition and allows even more students to participate. The club now holds numerous national records in that discipline.
FBLA (Future Business Leaders of America) prepares high school students for careers in business through academic competitions, leadership development, and educational programs. Through a variety of community service and academic competitions, students are given the necessary resources to become college and career ready. Our community service includes activities such as the annual Santa Photoshoot and a Pop-Tab Drive for the Ronald McDonald House Charity. FBLA’s academic competitions give students the opportunity to compete against the best-of-the-best from all 50 states, Europe, District of Columbia, U.S Virgin Islands, and Puerto Rico in over 60 academic events that cover technology, public speaking, business, film, finance, management, and more. The top winners take home trophies and cash from sponsored events, and FBLA members enjoy the benefits of discounts, scholarships, awards, and lots of fun.

The Del E. Webb Center for the Performing Arts is sponsoring an after-school club in conjunction with Wickenburg High School. The Theatre Ninja Club is for 9-12th grade students who are interested in the technical side of the performing arts. The goal of the club is to engage students in the technical aspects of live productions and allow them to apply those skills in a professional performing arts theatre. The students spend time learning lighting design, sound engineering, set design, and other stagehand roles. Participants are becoming proficient in the technical aspects of running a theatre and have begun working on school performances such as the Choir concert and WHS Fall Play. Ninjas also have the opportunity to shadow alongside the Webb Center staff during many of their professional touring performances.
The Art Club offers all Wickenburg High School students the opportunity to come into the art studio and get creative. Several times per year, the club gathers to create a 1-4 hour project in drawing, painting or ceramics. Some are art students seeking more time in the studio, or enjoying a new technique or medium. Many students are not current art students, due to their course schedules, and enjoy this opportunity to participate in art. As a department, WHS art students participate in several events each year, including Cowgirl Up! At the Desert Caballeros Western Museum, Wrangler Artist of the Month also at DCWM, the Congressional Art competition, and a year-end Art Show in the Del E Webb center. These events give students the opportunity to interact with the public, and receive professional feedback on their artwork. Art Club participants have the option to be involved in these events. But it is truly a place to go and be creative.
