The New England Flames Girls Basketball Club is a registered non-profit AAU basketball club that provides playing opportunities for girls in southern New Hampshire and northern Massachusetts. The program, founded in 1998, has grown into one of the largest girls AAU basketball programs in New England. The organization typically fields multiple teams from the 2nd - 12th grade age groups. The existence of multiple teams, at each age group, allows for differing levels of opportunity and development for players.
Countless Flames players have gone on to achieve success at both the middle school and high school level. There have also been many alumnae that have gone on to play collegiately as well.
Flames teams captured four medals, a gold, two silver and a bronze, in the 2015 AAU New Hampshire State Tournament.Full Story
