The Tucson Heat HS Girls Varsity team took part in their first games of the summer at Inspire Courts. While they went 0-2 for the day they showed great effort in both of their games. For the first game of the summer we could not be more happy as a coaching staff. There was a lot of positive today and a very good base for this team grow on throughout the summer. Congratulations girls on some great games.
Recently, the Tucson HEAT boys assisted at the arts and craft show at The Plaza Palomino. This community service event was put together by Fred Killian, former longtime President of the Tucson HEAT.
An important philosophical pillar of the Tucson HEAT program is the commitment to academic excellence as well as basketball excellence. To be a true student-athlete, players must display the ability to compete in the classroom as well as on the basketball court. The Tucson HEAT is committed to assisting the efforts of parents and teachers to help mold these young players into leaders who will make a positive contribution to our community.
