We take pride in fielding competitive teams that play an aggressive fall, spring and summer tournament schedule, extensive winter workout schedule. All our teams share the common goal of working towards competing in a Nationals tournament and playing in College!


The Jersey Flames have a long standing tradition with competitive softball. The Flames Organization has won many National Titles throughout the years and believes in putting teams together that teach young ladies how to compete at a high level while instilling a culture of values and integrity.

The Jersey Flames Schaffer 18u Gold team is one of the lowest cost year round travel teams. We provide a Fall Season / Winter Training / Summer Season (uniforms and equipment included) while playing at a high level in the best tournaments on the East Coast. The Schaffer 18u Gold team competes in the most prestigious tournaments including Elite Super 10, Pennsbury, Team NJ, VA Legendary Summer Scorcher, NE Finest and Clearwater Fall Classic, to name a few.  The Schaffer 18u Gold team recently made it to the Quarterfinals at Pennsbury, and was the Runner-up at the VA Summer Scorcher. We have developed many players that have gone on to play at prestigious D1, D2 and D3 Universities.
