Red Cloud Middle School athletics are an integral part of the total curriculum that is vital to the educational development of the student-athlete. Athletics play an important part in the lives of those attending Red Cloud School. Students/athletes learn a great deal from participation in interscholastic athletics. Lessons in sportsmanship, teamwork, competition, and how to win and lose gracefully are an integral part of each team in our athletic program.
