HEAT Community Affairs: Athletics
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 our HEAT Youth Basketball clinics presented by Gatorade. Select youth basketball leagues are given 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, Recreation and Open Spaces Department, Disability Services Division, the Miami HEAT offers support for the Miami HEAT Wheels, the adult wheelchair basketball team. Through the adult team, 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 April. For additional information on the team please contact the Miami-Dade Parks, Recreation and Open Spaces Department, Disability Services Division at 305-755-7848.
