The Rockets Swimming program offers AAU and USA swimming for all ages (youth and adult) in Brevard County. The program began in April 2016 with Mary Hoyt (Canadian Olympian), Chris Beadle (All American, National swimmer and Cocoa HS record holder) and Mitzi Kremer (USA Olympic medalist) with the goal to encourage participation in the sport of swimming. 

The AAU program provides the grass roots athletic program like basketball, gymnastics and track and field. It is a great way for participants to learn and improve in swimming. The USA swimming provides local, state and national competitions. Swimming is a FUN sport and one that can be done for a lifetime.

The USA program, ROCOA Rockets pays homage to the ROCOA program that started in the1960's under the direction of Hugh Miller, and later with Mo Hughes and Raul Montes. The program created a "home" for Brevard swimming and led to success in local, state and national competitions. Both Chris and Mitzi had the opportunity and privilege to be part of this program.  Today, the program enjoys the development of all ages and levels with the comradery of kids who represent various high school programs in the area.

Rockets Swimming is available in multiple locations and each coach has been selected for what he/she brings to the program and the positive development of the swimmers. The program includes weekend stroke technique clinics (free to members), development through elite level training, tri-athlon training, masters fitness program, and coming soon a progressive stroke development program for non-swimmers through intermediate level swimmers.

Swimming is an individual sport in a team environment. Building self-confidence, working with peers, setting goals and improving time management are just a few of the life lessons the swimmers learn that can be applied to school, the community, and to family.

The program has been designed to be affordable to all and there are scholarship opportunities so that everyone can participate in the program. Please contact [email protected] for additional information or to set up a time to attend and meet the coaching staff.
