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.

  • Auburn TD Club – Auburn High School – Funding Needed

    Because of the financial needs of many, if not most, of the Auburn players, we aspire to raise monies to provide them with items that will promote their participation in football. Items such as
    food (Thursday night pre-game meals, double session healthy snacks, Saturday morning film session breakfast bars, etc),equipment (tshirts, shorts, specialty girdles, cutter gloves, endzone cameras, etc.), andcoaches (summer camp coaches, additional coaches/stipends for the season).are incentives for these kids to show up for practice regularly, work harder at their academic eligibility, and to accept the greater expectations we are placing before them. Please consider helping us out in this worthwhile cause. Contact Dan Appino with questions: (815) 494-3382
