Congrats to the Rockford Heat Class of 2015

Rockford Heat has seen an amazing progression in the program since it began with just one team about 8 short years ago. There are many that have been part of this success from the Class of 2015 and now it is time to wish everyone farewell as these players leave to play basketball in college. These ladies have reached all levels from Div 1, Div 2, Div 3, and National Juco teams. The Class of 2015 was honored to have 14 players and even more humbled and proud to see all 14 decide to sign multiple letters of Intent to receive over 1 million in scholarships to continue in college. The last couple of seasons we have had Varsity teams playing at the top levels in all major NCAA Certified Events and these players have helped make Rockford Heat become a very respected name amongst college coaches from around the country.

Good luck Class of 2015, best wishes, and continue to work hard in the classroom and on the court!
