About Us

 

HEAT Hoops (formerly Upper Makefield HEAT) provides AAU experiences for girls ages 8-18 located primarily in the Bucks/Montgomery County, PA and surrounding New Jersey area. HEAT Hoops provides an opportunity to play at a competitive level in the winter, spring and summer. We strive to offer teams at every age group and talent level - making both a National and Regional level team whenever possible. Our goal is to promote the sport of women's basketball through fair play, consistent effort and quality coaching. We have open tryouts, and all are welcome to attend!

 

What Makes HEAT Hoops AAU Unique? 

  • We encourage development of both the physical and mental sides of the game. Playing for our club means you need to be an active thinker and contributor to team play. 

  • We focus on giving positive energy (this goes for parents too!) and strive to help grow mentally tough and resilient players.

  • We do not believe in players being "basketball players only" unless they choose to be. We encourage multi-sport athletes and strive to be flexible with their other commitments.

  • We stress skill development and fundamentals all the way through our age groups. We believe players are always learning and have unlimited potential for future growth. 

  • We offer a high-quality AAU option without hours of travel, with practices mostly located in the Newtown, PA area.

  • Our college exposure teams have attended and will attend national events in Chicago, Atlanta, Spooky Nook, Baltimore, Boston, Orlando, Washington, DC and more. 

  • Our high school teams have their games videotaped, and we provide extensive personalized support for those players interested in pursuing college recruitment.

  • We have coaches that are not paid, but instead come from strong backgrounds of playing and/or coaching and are volunteering for the love of teaching the game.
