The battle for second place was started by Jo, Kirsty, Shannon M, Sarah and Opal. It was always going to be a tough match and it took a foul on Sarah to open our scoring with one point. Our shots were off and Southern went on an unanswered scoring run of 15. Lauren left the bench and so too did Shannon Tarran to step in for Jo who was already on 3 fouls.more


It was a hard fought match on Saturday night and it had us on the edge of our seats. Opal, Jo, Kirsty, Shannon M and Sarah started. Woodville quickly scored and Opal replied for the Rockets. As she scrambled on the floor, a terrific pass to Shannon resulted in a nice three.more


It was always going to be a close contest. The starting five were Jo Hill, Shannon McKay, Kirsty Williams, Opal Mader and Sarah Elsworthy. Jo opened our scoring and it was a physical, fast game from the start. Kirsty and Sarah were playing strong defence and as the coach yelled instructions, Jo scored, was fouled in the air and made the bonus.more

we would love to absolutely stack Hillcrest to the rafters!!! Can
we? Lets see!!!more


It was freezing in the Pasadena Stadium as the Rockets prepared to take on Sturt, to cement our place as second. We soon warmed up cheering the starting five of Jo Hill, Opal Mader, Kirsty Williams, Shannon McKay and Sarah Elsworthy. Lauren Thornett was resting a sore ankle. Sarah opened our scoring and also made a bonus.more

As we celebrated that Lauren Badenoch had now become Mrs Thornett on Saturday and was now on her honeymoon, the starting 5 were: Jo Hill; Kirsty Williams; Shannon Mackay; Opal Mader and Sarah Elsworthy. It was a great first quarter with Kirsty opening the scoring and showing strong defence. So much so, that she had 3 fouls within the first 5 minutes.more


Despite a spirited last quarter comeback, and several opportunities to steal the game, the Rockets Men’s Premier League team had a disappointing loss to bottom team Eastern on Sunday in Mt Barker. For the majority of the game, the boys just never got going offensively and were unable to put any scoreboard pressure on their previously winless opponents, who showed spirit and resolve.more

Anzac Day Clash - Rockets Premier League Women v Centrals at Hillcrest Stadium

With the same strong starting five as Friday night’s match, Rockets started strongly against the Lions. Shannon Mackay opened with a beautiful lay-up, Kirsty followed with a smooth shot and Rockets were scoring well. Sarah and Shannon Tarran were subbed in, followed by Georgia and Courtney, who all played their role and contributed well.more


The North Adelaide Men’s Premier league team had a very comfortable win over a young Centrals team on Anzac Day at Hillcrest, 89-55, with Luke Pike winning the prestigious ANZAC Medal for his performance. Despite some early resistance from the Lions, the boys built their win on some excellent defence, cruising to a 34 point victory.more

Women's Premier League North v Forestville Friday 22nd April

It was great to back at home to celebrate Courtney Hansen’s 50th game and take on the Eagles. The starting 5 consisted of Shannon McKay, Kirsty Williams, Lauren Badenoch, Jo Hill and Opal Mader.more


A severely undermanned North Adelaide Men’s Premier League team, missing five first choice players and with Tom Rowe under duress due to illness, managed to stay in touch with Forestville until three quarter time on Friday night, before fatigue finally took over. With Luke Mapunda, Brett Collins, Stephen Branson, John Wernham and Ray Harding all unavailable, it was going to be a massive ask.more

Rockets Women Premier League in Grand Final rematch v Norwood at Mars

The Grand Final rematch was always going to be a great game, we were just hoping for a different result. The match opened slowly with Jo Hill, Shannon Mackay, Lauren Badenoch, Kirsty Williams and Opal Mader. The Rockets pushed hard down the court but Norwood’s height advantage was noticeable and made an impact immediately. Opal opened the scoring and the Rockets fans were excited.more


As the long awaited Blockbuster match was here, it was exciting to walk into Wayville and see a match underway. The Rockets were ready to take on the challenge of the Southern Tigers and it was good to have Jo Hill back.more


The loss of leading scorer and rebounder Luke Mapunda, and the experienced Brett Collins proved too big a hurdle for the North Premier League Men to overcome on Sunday, in their game against a Southern team that realistically contained 4 NBL quality players. The boys struggled from the get go, quickly falling behind and never able to make up the difference.more


A large number of Rocket’s supporters made the trip to Marion to cheer on the women’s team and they weren’t disappointed. With the starting 5 consisting of Shannon McKay, Kirsty Williams, Lauren Badenoch, Shannon Tarran and Opal Mader, stepping in for the ill Jo Hill, the Rockets were ready to play.more


Well they have done it again. In another last minute nail biter, the Rockets Men’s Premier League team maintained their “cardiac kids” image by holding off a fast finishing South Adelaide at Marion, finally winning by 4 points (73-69).more

Rockets Women in an exciting and close game against Woodville

It was due to be a tightly fought contest and it didn’t disappoint. The match opened with Jo Hill, Shannon McKay, Lauren Badenoch, Kirsty Williams and Shannon Tarran dominating the play. Shannon Tarran opened the scoring and the Rockets fans were excited. Woodville settled and their new import Tavarsha Scott played a starring role.more


Recent results suggested the game against Woodville was going to be a tight affair, and that is exactly what the good sized contingent of Rocket’s fans witnessed, with the final result not clear until the very end. In a very close encounter, with just 1 minute 18 seconds left on the clock, and momentum with the Warriors, North were 2 points down, and things were looking ominous.more


The North Adelaide Rockets Men’s Premier League Team, despite a shaky start, managed a solid 11 point win over West Adelaide (81-70) at Hillcrest on Saturday, mainly off the back of a great game from Luke Mapunda, who finished with 24 points, 16 rebounds, 7 assists and 3 steals, ably supported by some excellent contributions off the bench, from Brad Jonnek, Brett Collins and Luke Pike.more

Facebook and Other Social Media

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.


More Coaching Help on the Web

Some more coaching material has been uploaded to the Rockets Website. This involves a series of drills from Adelaide 36ers coach Marty Clarke. You can find the new material by going to the coaching resources tab and then clicking on the Marty Clarke item.
