The franchise was announced as an expansion member of the North American Lacrosse League on January 14, 2012. Originally scheduled to be a 2013 expansion team, due to initial struggles and as a result of the NALL and PLL split, the Rockhoppers moved up their first season to 2012.
On March 2, 2012 the Rockhoppers faced-off against the Kentucky Stickhorses in the first game between two NALL franchises. The Stickhorses won 19-14. The two teams opened the 2013 season, with the Rockhoppers winning 10-9.
After leading the league in goals per game with 16, they played in the championship game against the Kentucky Stickhorses.
