In brief: Potentially

There is a condition - hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating - that is heritable and can cause sweaty palms.
A ucla study revealed that parents with sweaty palms had a 28% chance of passing this on to their children. Of course, sweaty palms can be a symptom of another disorder, so you should always consult your doctor to get a thorough work-up to rule out other causes for sweaty palms.
