Team America Rocketry Challenge

Semroc has been a big supporter of TARC over the years. We encourage any Middle to High School youngster to get involved. TARC is jointly sponsored by the Aerospace Industries Association (AIA) and the National Association of Rocketry (NAR). TARC is the largest national rocket contest for high school and middle school age students in the United States. The contest was originally conceived as a one-time event to commemorate the centennial of flight. It has been so successful and has garnered such a wide base of support from the aerospace industry that is now an annual event.

Since the first year, hundreds of schools and youth organizations and thousands of youth have participated. Each year the design goals change to keep the event fresh and present new challenges to returning teams. The challenge for each year is fully described in the TARC Team Rules. TARC is open to schools and other recognized youth organizations with contestants enrolled in the seventh through twelfth grade.

Semroc has had been involved with TARC since its beginning. We have served as Pad Manager (the late Carl McLawhorn) for seven years, Timer (Bruce McLawhorn) for five years, Randy Boadway for one year and also have served as mentors and observers for many local teams. Semroc has provided many of the parts used by teams over the years and we have always provided generous discounts to TARC teams.

If you are an educator or youth leader and are not signed up for TARC, we highly recommend it. In addition to the financial benefits for the winning teams, the team building and real science experience makes every participant a winner. The excitement of the event at Great Meadows will be a highlight of your youths' lives, should they make the final cut. As one of the very proud industry sponsors told me a few years ago, "Our future employees are at this event!"

If you are still not sure or just have more questions, email us at or call us at 616-460-2678. We support TARC and will do everything we can to help make your experience pleasurable. For local teams, we provide support, mentoring, and are glad to observe as many flights as we can. Join NARTARC for the latest information and discussions.

We can not provide custom parts, but we are adding new parts all the time to our on-line catalog. If you don't see something you need online, ask about it. Most of our new products are requested by our customers. Our goal is to have the most extensive catalog of model rocket parts that has ever been assembled under one roof for same day shipping.

Everything we sell is backed by our 100% Satisfaction Guarantee. If you are not satisfied, we are not either, until you are satisfied.
