Heat Elite Player Commits To Rock Valley College!

Shout out to Heat Elite Senior Brielle Shaw(Harlem High) for committing to play basketball at Rock Valley College. Brielle is our last recruit in the Class of 2020. Brielle is a fast PG that can attack the hoop, shoot the 3, or set up a teammate. Brielle has great defense and brings a high level of comfort to the team when she is on the floor. Brielle chose Rock Valley after weighing multiple opportunities and offers from elsewhere and we are lucky to have her staying home to showcase her talent.

NIKE TOC Des Moines Week 3 Recap

NIKE TOC Des Moines Week 3 Recap

It was a great finish for our July tourneys in Des Moines for our Elite 17U, Elite Sophs, and 8th Grade Elite. Several athletes got noticed by college scouts and coaches and some got offers! The games were great and intense, however some of the best memories will be when we all got to hang out with each other at @smashparkdm and challenge each other in pickle ball, bags, ping pong, connect four, shuffle board, and arcade games! It was great seeing all the parents and players making memories that will last a lifetime!! Enjoy the photos and share more if you have them!

Rockford Heat is proud of all you ladies!!
