The Raleigh Sports Club continues to experience phenomenal membership growth and a rising community awareness. By continuing to recognize both high school and college athletic environments the RSC continues its long tradition for competing teams and fans alike to find common ground of athletic and academic achievement in our future generations.
Originally established as a local sports club with 12 original members, the RSC has grown to over 300 members with weekly Wednesday luncheon meetings where they have the opportunity to listen to some of the most influential college and professional sporting figures first hand while recognizing athletic and academic achievement on a number of different levels.
