HEAT Youth Basketball Presented by Gatorade
In an effort to help create champions on the court as well as off it, the Miami HEAT, Gatorade and Florida Blue 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 HEAT players and coaches at special basketball clinics.

In conjunction with the Miami-Dade Parks' Leisure Access Services, the Miami HEAT offers support for the Miami HEAT Wheels, the adult wheelchair basketball team and the HEAT Sparks, the junior wheelchair team. Through the adult and junior teams, players teach others how those with disabilities lead active and productive lives. The HEAT Wheels practice throughout the year and compete in local and regional matches while attempting to qualify for the National Wheelchair Basketball Tournament in February. For additional information on the team please contact Jody Cox of the Leisure Access Foundation at 305-755-7848.
