The North Adelaide Rockets are lucky to have a very loyal and supportive group of sponsors, including some who have been backing the club for many years. The Rockets would like to thank them for their contributions which help the club in so many ways, but most importanatly allow for yearly subscription fees to be kept to a minimum. To read more about this loyal group click on more on this message. The rockets would also ask that where possible club members and their families and friends support our sponsors as well.
Some new details are available for the Aussie Hoops program at Hillcrest in 2012.

Over the last few years there has been a considerable growth in open forums, such as Facebook, Twitter and Hoops and the club felt it was appropriate to address their use in as far as it affects parents, players, coaches, officials and the club in general.
While these forums are a very accepted part of every day life, it is the club’s belief that they are not an appropriate way of airing an individual’s views on basketball related matters. There have been a number of instances where these sites have been used for criticism of players, coaches and officials and even cases of bullying and this is unacceptable as far as the club is concerned.
Please be responsible in your use of these mediums and be aware that if inappropriate material is brought to the club’s attention it will result in disciplinary action against the person or persons involved.
While often only a passing comment these items can cause considerable concern for other parties involved.
