Girls High School Tryouts ANNOUNCED!

Girls High School Tryouts ANNOUNCED!

Open Tryouts for Under Armour Spring/Summer

9th-11th Grade Girls AAU Teams

(Tryout Grades are based off the grade you are currently in)

We have officially become an Under Armour(UA) affiliated program, that will participate in the UA Rise Circuit. With that being said, there are some advantages to being in a program that is affiliated with one of the 3 Shoe Circuits in the Country and that is potential additional exposure to college coaches. For high school girls, we have proven to be the BEST in the area for college recruitment and proud of the amount of athletes that are considered to be top players in the region for their respective high schools. I look forward to your student athlete possibly following in those footsteps. The 9th-11th grade teams will be playing competitive basketball while gaining exposure to college coaches and scouts in NCAA Certified Events.

March 2019 – July 2019

Where:​UW Health Sports Factory

305 S. Madison St., Rockford

When: Saturday Feb. 24th

6pm-9pm for 9th-11th Grades,

Please arrive 30 min early for check in.

Rockford Heat Announcement!

Rockford Heat Announcement!

Rockford Heat High School Girls will now be part of the Under Armour Rise Circuit and the Rockford Heat Jr High will be part of the Under Armour Future Circuit starting spring of 2019. We wanted you to be in the loop on some things that have been in the works for a couple years now. With that being said, there are some advantages to being in a program that is affiliated with one of the 3 Shoe Circuits in the Country and that is potential additional exposure to college coaches. There are a total of 3 Shoe circuits that exist. They are UNDER ARMOUR, NIKE, and ADDIDAS. This is NOT to be confused as being sponsored by Under Armour, there are NO programs in the country that are sponsored by Under Armour, NIKE, or Addidas. For high school girls, we have proven to be the BEST in the area and proud of the amount of athletes that are considered to be top players in the region for their respective high schools. I look forward to your student athlete possibly following in those footsteps.

Please click the link below and check out the Alumnae Page for confirmation of why Rockford Heat has lead the way in the area helping Area Athletes connect with college coaches from all around the the country.
