HEAT Youth Basketball

HEAT Youth Basketball Logo

In an effort to help create champions on the court as well as off it, the Miami HEAT and Gatorade have teamed up to offer South Florida youth recreational basketball leagues a chance to feel the HEAT Experience by taking part in the HEAT Youth Basketball program presented by Gatorade. As a member of the program, your participants will be eligible to receive an exclusive HEAT Youth Basketball package and special HEAT offers.

Select member leagues will also be afforded the opportunity to gain excellent on and off-court basketball training and instruction on improving their basketball and teamwork skills from the HEAT players and coaches themselves at special basketball clinics. The clinics will also highlight the importance of healthy dietary choices and physical activity among our youth.
