Rockets looking for play-by-play guy

The Okanagan Rockets are searching for their 1st play by play voice for the 2013-2014 season.
The Rockets are planning on webcasting all 20 home games from the Capital News Centre this season.
At the top of qualifications required is dedication. Rockets general manager David Michaud first and foremost is looking for someone to represent the Rockets brand with consistency.
"We feel we can help someone who has always had the desire to become a sports broadcaster, but has lacked the opportunity to have a team to call games for.  Getting a chance in the BCHL, or the WHL doesn't come around very often, and you need experience. We want to provide an individual the chance to call 20 games and help assist our media relations department as well."
The Rockets games will all be played out of the Capital News Centre with games slotted typically for 3:00 pm on Saturday's and 10:00 am on Sunday's.
The Rockets will provide all gear for the interested party.
If you are interested in this opportunity, please contact Rockets director of media and game day operations Wendy McLeod at
