 The Rocket Award

We want to give as many opportunities as possible for our athletes to achieve whatever goals they have set for themselves.  The Rocket Award of a $1000 scholarship to post secondary education will be given to two graduating athletes each year and recognizes the incredible achievement of these individuals, but we will not give it to just anyone.  These are the requirements:

1. They must have played at least 4 seasons with the Rockets teams. 

2. They must have worked hard to achieve honourable mention in school.

3. They must be respectful, to coaches, referees, fans, and the other team. 

4. They must be a good teammate, and being a good teammate means not only looking out for your teammates, but showing up to practice and games to show respect for their time. 

5. They must have faithful attendance, there are legitimate excuses for missing practices, and there are not.  We understand that there are more important things in life than basketball, but we also understand when someone is just being lazy :)

6. They must work hard in practices, games, and skills camps, showing leadership through that hard work.
