Since 2004, the Rockford Heat has competed regionally and nationally helping Rockford-area girls earn scholarships and get their education while playing collegiate level basketball.

Making a Difference in Rockford Since 2004…

Rockford Heat Basketball has been Established in 2004 with just one team, since then the program has grown to multiple teams at all grade levels.  Rockford Heat has competed regionally and nationally helping several players earn scholarships to get their education while playing basketball at the collegiate level.

Our Mission is to develop student-athletes who will be prepared to succeed both on and off the court. We will attempt to provide our players with the skills and techniques to succeed in tomorrow’s world. Winning is not always the ultimate goal, but the experience of having worked hard both on and off the court to achieve success as a Rockford Heat Player is the lesson we hope to impart to our players.

All sports are competitive and AAU basketball is no exception. Our team has and will face fierce competition from all over the region. Therefore, as coaches, we have to select players who bring the most to the team or a certain position. Unfortunately, when there are tryouts there are also players who are cut. This does not mean that your player should give up basketball; this simply means that your player needs to continue to play the game in one form or another and continue to improve their individual skills. Because, if they truly love the game and want to play competitively, there will truly be no obstacles that they cannot overcome.
