Local basketball product Hayden Richardson is the first signing for the Schwarz Excavations Rockhampton Rockets for the 2024 Mitsubishi NBL1 Season.  The shooting guard is looking forward to an exciting year with the Rockets and doing all he can to have Rockets competing in finals in 2024.


Richardson said, “After a disappointing year for the team in 2024, the boys have been working hard in the off season to prepare for the upcoming season.  I am really looking forward to the season ahead and help the team in any way possible to get us back in NBL1 finals contention.”


Head Coach Neal Tweedy said, “Hayden is now coming into his 6th season with the Rockets. He has a skillset that allows him to play at this level and that his ability to shoot the ball. Young players that can shoot the ball at a high percentage can be a valuable commodity in the NBL1. We will be relying on him to do that so we can space the floor and not allow teams to protect the paint.”
