About Rockford Sports Coalition (RSC)

RSC was founded by community leaders in 1992 when proposed budget cuts threatened to eliminate public school sports and close all high school pools.Formed by area parents and leaders, RSC intervened and directly provided funds to the schools to reopen programs including all high school and middle school pools. Since then, RSC has provided more than $850,000 directly to schools without the overhead of traditional funding.

  • District 205 seeking funds to help build track at Jefferson

    The Rockford Public Schools continues to upgrade its various athletic facilities. The district plans to have a track in place at Jefferson High School by the beginning of the 2017-2018 school year. Currently, Jefferson’s track team splits its practice time between Jefferson and Wyeth Stadium at Auburn High School. The new track will save the district in travel costs and more importantly track athletes in travel time.┬áPlease contribute to the Rockford Sports Coalition to help offset the costs of the new track.
