14r-block1-250Macy & Alexis “The Wall”15r-kelsey-dig1-250Kelsey diggin’ it up! Tryouts can be stressful – just try your best, play FREE, and have some fun! We are not always looking at the ‘result’ of your skill. Often we are looking at effort, willingness to change, judgement, how you treat others, hussle, communication, and the intangibles that make a good teammate. These things are hard to evaluate, so just let your colors shine thru!

We prefer to have you tryout in the youngest age group that you’re eligible for. That way we can field strong teams in every age group. If you are unsure of the age group you should tryout in, just give us a call at (319) 337-3613 or 330-9499, and we’ll help you figure it out. The clinics that we run are totally separate from Rockets and you do not have to get into a clinic to tryout for Rockets. ALL are welcome to tryout! The fee of $30 covers both tryouts. You can mail or deliver a check in advance, or pay cash at the door. (The $45 tryout fee is only owed if you fail to register online, 24 hours in advance.)
