HEAT Youth Basketball

In an effort to help create champions on the court as well as off it, the Miami HEAT offers South Florida youth recreational basketball leagues a chance to feel the HEAT Experience by taking part in our HEAT Youth Basketball clinics. 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.
