The Midwest Flames are a semi-professional basketball team, affiliated with the American Basketball Association, known as the ABA. The ABA is the largest professional Basketball league in the United States and the most diversified professional basketball league in history with 70% of the teams owned by African Americans, Asians, and women. The ABA is more than just a game - it is a commitment to the community. Our team has aspirations to work closely with the local Boys & Girls Clubs, YMCA’s, schools, youth groups, and other not-for-profits in any endeavor to help them accomplish their missions. We will provide an exciting brand of professional basketball at affordable prices so entire families can enjoy the games and entertainment we’ll provide. Our goal is to create and develop one of the best teams, and build one of the best organizations in the ABA.
