The Rockets have represented Kelowna, British Columbia, Canada, since 1995. The team competes in the Western Hockey League (WHL), which enables top young prospects in Western Canada and the U.S. the opportunity to reach their full potential both on and off the ice. The league provides an ideal environment for players to develop hockey skills while not compromising their academic goals. The Rockets have 17 banners hanging in their home arena, Prospera Place, including a Memorial Cup win in 2004 and four WHL championships. The family-run team has developed some notable stars in the National Hockey League (NHL) in recent years, including Jamie Benn, Leon Draisaitl, Sheldon Souray, Kyle McLaren, and Shea Weber.
