Tryout dates & times for the 2024/2025 season are listed below.  Rockets will offer Summer Tryouts!  Plus, we’ll still have Fall tryouts.  We won’t fill every spot on every team, so there’s opportunity for everyone.

If you’re interested in Rockets, please CONTACT us by email or call us at (319) 330-9499.  We’d LOVE to talk with you.  If you are not familiar with Iowa Rockets and would like to be considered for a certain team, just reach out to us.  Contrary to popular belief, our teams are NOT set and we have openings on all teams.  

Our tryouts only cost $30

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, hustle, 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) 330-9499, and we’ll help you figure it out. Or check with the Iowa Region regarding NEW age definitions. 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 summer tryouts. You can mail or deliver a check in advance, or pay cash at the door. (The tryout fee is $45 if you do not pre-register online at least 24 hours before the tryout.)
