Thank you for visiting the Morton Heat Basketball website. The goal of the "Morton Basketball Association" is to provide Morton area boys and girls the opportunity to learn and practice the fundamentals of basketball in a structured setting and to experience basketball at a competitive level against other teams their age.
We are very pleased to announce that the Morton Basketball Association will be offering two Heat Travel Light basketball teams this year. One 3rd/4th grade team and one 5th/6th grade team. The player fee for kids interested and selected to play on these teams will be $100 for the season ($55 In-House League Fee and $45 Travel Light Fee). Each Heat TL player will play 10-15 travel games in addition to the 10 In-House League games and the In-House League Tournament. Heat TL players will be provided with Morton Heat uniforms to wear during their season. Heat TL teams will be selected, from interested In-House League players, at the MBA In-House Evaluations on October 26th.
