Rochester Central Lutheran School



RCLS offers a complete athletic program, including soccer, cross country, volleyball, girls’ basketball, boys’ basketball, softball, and track and field. The athletics program is designed to develop Christian character through team sports and to train student-athleties––spiritually, academically, and physically.

Our teams compete in the Southeast Minnesota Lutheran Athletic Conference (SEMLAC), and in some sports, against area public and non-public schools. The teams are coached by faculty members, volunteer parents, or volunteer friends of RCLS. Exhibiting Christian sportsmanship is a high priority, and student-athletes are encouraged to witness their faith with their words and actions, including hard, aggressive, and fair play.

“For physical training is of some value, but godliness has value for all things, holding promise for both the present life and the life to come.” 1 Timothy 4:8
