Athletics & Activities

We are very excited to announce that in the fall of 2022 we were accepted into the Minnesota State High School League (MSHSL) as an Associate Member. This allows all of our high school students to now be eligible for MSHSL sponsored extra-curricular activities. It also gives us the ability to form our own high school teams or co-op with other high schools for activities. 


While the process of adding activities will take time, this is exciting for not only our current high school students, but for all students of RCS who want to take part in activities in the future. We look forward to growing all that we have to offer in athletics, music, drama, robotics and other activities that our students are interested in.

To the right are the activities we currently offer or are looking to offer for the 2022-23 school year (we are a part of Section 8A in Minnesota). Any activity with an * is one where we are currently working on a co-op with another local school for this school year. We will look to expand our list of activities available for the 2023-24 school year.


  • Boys’ and Girls’ Cross Country 



  • Boys’ and Girls’ Basketball* 



  • Baseball* 
  • Softball* 
  • Boys’ and Girls’ Track & Field* 
  • Boys’ and Girls’ Golf* 


Clubs & Organizations 

  • Archery Club* 
  • Robotics Club 
  • Intramurals:  We are excited to announce that we will be offering intramural activities once again this school year for our elementary students.  


Here is our schedule for the year: 

  • Girls’ Basketball (Grades 2-6): October 24 – December 15 
  • Boys’ Basketball (Grades 2-6): January – March (Exact Dates TBD) 
  • Youth Soccer (Grades PreK – 6): April – May (Exact Dates TBD) 

We are also excited to announce that for basketball we will be partnering with the YMCA, and for soccer with the East Grand Forks Soccer Club. This will allow us to form teams, play games and be a part of the greater Grand Forks community. 


With all of these activities at the elementary level, our goal is simple. We want your kids to have fun, learn the game and build even stronger relationships with each other. We truly believe that getting kids involved early with these activities will help build up friendships and pride in RCS that will lead to your children wanting to be here for middle school and high school. So please sign your kids up! 


All registration forms for intramurals can be picked up in the RCS Office. 


If you have any activities related questions, please contact RCS Activities Director Eric Morrow at or 218-773-1770 Ext. 6000.
