Rockets Lockdown Resources
To all our Rockets families. This is a really challenging time for everyone and we are sad that we can’t currently provide any face-to-face training for your son/ daughter at the moment. But we have hope for the future and we are so looking forward to being back on the court with them soon.
We hope some of the following recourses can help you keep your keen basketball players active during this time with a range of games, workouts, videos and links to YouTube.
I know you are all probably keen to get your children away from screens but YouTube is a great place to find workouts and inspirational videos from pro players.
As a research task they could try to find highlight clips of our Rockets Pro Players:
Lewid Diankulu and O’showen Williams
Steph Johnson – Head of Rockets Community Programme
Each day select a player from one of the weeks and then follow the exercise linked to that letter. You must complete an exercise for every letter of their first and second name!!!!!!
(Good luck with Giannas Antetokounmpo!!!)
You can choose from the fitness exercises or the skill workouts or mix them together for an all-round workout.
You can also access videos on the community You Tube channel which has a mixture of fitness, skill, and fun games that you can have a go at. If you subscribe you will be notified if more are added.

How Can you support your club during COVID?
Rockets have partnered up with Givetolocal which helps grass roots community clubs bring in monthly donations from their members and supporters. They are looking for a minimum donation of £3 per month to help the club continue to provide community sport to those young people that are in need of engagement in sport.
If you’re in a position to be able to donate to our foundation then please use the link below to register and donate. As I’m sure your aware that lockdown is having a huge impact on community sports clubs as very little financial support is available to us and many costs still need to be covered during this time. Any support is hugely appreciated.
Also if you own a company that would like to advertise on the app to our 300+ families you can also donate a minimum of £8 each month whilst letting everyone know what your company does and how they can access your product/business.
