The Utah Rocket Club is an organization dedicated to the promotion of safe and fun activities for people of all ages through the sport, science, and hobby of rocketry.
Some of our members emphasize scale modeling and fine detail in their projects while others care more for brute force and sheer power. Some rockets are very simple in their design and use basic single parachute recovery systems. Other rockets are extremely complex using clustered or staged motors, advanced electronics, multiple parachute events and even radio control and on-board video transmission. Whatever your particular interest in hobby rocketry, UROC can contribute.
The Utah Rocket Club is an organization of people dedicated to the promotion of model, sport and amateur rocketry. The Utah Rocket Club, or UROC , was originally an informal union of members of Tripoli Utah and NAR Section 523. Members of UROC come from a variety of backgrounds and share one common interest - launching rockets!
Under the umbrella of our two national sanctioning organizations the National Association of Rocketry and the Tripoli Rocketry Association UROC members launch rockets ranging from the smallest scale models to custom designed high power rockets taller than a person and capable of reaching altitudes of tens of thousands of feet.
UROC holds monthly meetings, construction workshops, field trips and (most important) rocket launches. Our launches conform to the standards set forth in the NAR Model and High Power Safety Codes, which, in place for almost 40 years, have allowed millions of launches without any serious injuries.
