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.
Games/Practices: Approximately 30 games are scheduled for each Heat Travel team, which are normally played on weekends beginning in mid-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. Heat Travel Light has about half the number of games.
Cost: Heat Travel - $135 annual player fee; Heat Travel Light - $60 annual player fee. These fees are payable to Morton Basketball Association, the first week of practice. This fee helps defray the costs of referees, insurance, uniforms, tournament fees and other program expenses.

There will be hoops "open gyms" this year for incoming 5th and 6th grade boys, on Mondays from 6:30 - 8:00 at the Jr. High...
