“Giving back to the community is such a focal point of our organization,” said Rockets Vice President and General Manager Andy Makal. “We’ve all known someone whose life has been affected by breast cancer. We want to honor those who have fought back and help find a cure so that maybe others can be spared that struggle.”

The Rockets open their first season of play at home against the Jacksonville Bullies on September 29th at 7:05. As the Rockets prepare for the opening game of their inaugural season, one thing is certain – The team is motivated.
