Rafaļskis played for JFC Skonto in his youth years, but started his professional career with FK Rīga in 2005. He played there for 3 years, making 67 league appearances and scoring 3 goals, also helping his team in cup competitions.

In February 2011 he went on trial with the Russian First Division club FC Baltika Kaliningrad and signed a contract with them. At the start of 2012 Rafaļskis left Baltika, returning to the Latvian Higher League and joining Daugava Daugavpils. He became the Latvian Higher League champion in 2012. On 14 February 2013 Rafaļskis signed a 2-year deal with the Icelandic Pepsi League club ÍA.  Prior to the 2014 Latvian Higher League season Rafaļskis joined FC Jūrmala. In September 2014 he moved to the Polish I liga club Wigry Suwałki, signing a one-year contract.
