Welcome to the Department of Athletics

Athletic Scheduling Program

We will be using rSchool to schedule all Athletic Contests. This program has a lot of features that will make it easier to keep track of your sons/daughters contest schedule. For example:

  • You can download your son/daughters contest schedule into your calendar program and when we (the Athletic Department) change one of his/her contests, it will move the contest on whatever calendar program you use automatically - which is very nice.
  • You can sign up to receive text/e-mail alerts regarding schedule changes - really nice for parents of kids playing outdoor spring sports where the schedule changes regularly.
  • You can have rSchool send you a text or e-mail reminder 15/30/45/etc., minutes before your son/daughters contest is supposed to start so you don't miss it.
