About Us

Our Purpose

ROAR is chapter 795 of the NAR. We are a community of sports rocketry enthusiasts of all levels, from beginners to experts, who share a common passion for rocketry. The club provides a venue for rocketeers and students in Central Florida to have fun learning, building, and launching rockets of various sizes and shapes. We also promote safe and responsible rocketry practices, following a similar process to the launch protocol of NASA.  The club’s mission is to inspire and educate the next generation of rocket scientists and engineers, as well as to enjoy the thrill and excitement of rocketry as a hobby.

We hold monthly public launches typically on the 4th Saturday of every month from 10AM to 4PM.

Volunteers and enthusiasts of all ages are welcome!
