Games/Practices: Approximately 30 games are scheduled for each team, which are normally played on weekends beginning in November and continuing through February. Home games are played at MJHS. Practices are scheduled twice a week and are posted on the Morton Heat website.

Cost: There is a $125 participation fee for each player, payable to Morton Basketball Association, the first week of practice. This fee helps defray the costs of referees, insurance, uniforms and tournament fees.
