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.
