Flames season wrap: Where to watch Flames in the offseason
The Brydens Sydney Uni Flames have finished their Community Blitz and now the players are travelling across Australia to play in the NBL1.
The NBL1 semi-professional league that takes place across Australia. Almost the Flames entire roster will be across the competition this WNBL offseason.
The Blitz was a Brydens Community initiative that enables Flames players to be role models in the community and work with local associations to encourage more women and girls to play basketball.
The last program was the Train Like a Flame Clinic, a camp hosted and ran by Flames players. With a sold out program the clinic was a success, giving young athletes access to the best the WNBL has to offer.
After two weeks of working with the next generation of NSW female basketballers, the Flames will now split off into various NBL1 Conferences and teams to improve on their game going into the next WNBL season.
