THE BOONE COUNTY ROCKETS

We are a U-14 mixed recreational soccer team from Northern Kentucky that was formed over 5 years ago. We started out as an overflow team back then with boys that wanted to play soccer but no team to play on, thus a new team was formed called The Rockets. We gained a few new players every season and now we are one of the most competitive teams in the area. Unlike many teams in our area, the Rocket players come from many different schools in Northern Kentucky (7).  Because of soccer, these players, and their parents, have built strong frienships.  This was the start of our second year at the U14 age level and our expectations for a successful fun season was high. We have become a very popular team, as our roster was totally full. 

We ended the regular fall 2008 season with a record of 6-1-1 a very good improvement from the spring season when we ended up 5-3. Not bad for a truely recreational team as everyone plays and usually gets to play at least half the game.  This fall season we had many returning familiar faces, and a few new ones too. The Rockets had 2 players playing up in age and a pretty good balance between olders and youngers.  With this combination of players, the sky was the limit for the Rockets as this was a very successful and fun season. 

THE ROCKET PHILOSOPHY
The team is dedicated to enriching the lives of the players (and parents) using the game of soccer. The team foundation consists of a few simple goals:

1. Having fun
2. Developing individual soccer skills and team tactics for each player and have them get a taste of playing all positions if possible
3. Developing good sportsmanship
4. Rewarding hard work and dedication


IF YOU WANT TO DO SOMETHING GREAT, YOU HAVE TO DO MORE THAN WHAT'S EXPECTED
