After a successful first season in the LFB the Flammes Carolo Basket Ardennes ASPTT (FCB), as they are known locally, have different ambitions for 2011-2012.

The club had to let go four of the players that were part of the team that won promotion to the elite:

Carine Contess (CSP Réze - NF1), Bélinda M’Boma (Limoges ABC), Sarra Ouerghi (SASP Lyon BF - LFB) and Alexia Kusion (Roches Vendée - LF2).

Frédéric Malherbe, the assistant coach for the last eight years, moved on. He is now the assistant coach at Le Poiré-sur-Vie in NF1.

In addition Kristen Mann left for Lattes Montpellier.

Bojana Vulic was replaced by Polish international Patrycja Gulak-Lipka after Christmas. Gulak-Lipka who played for Poland at EuroBasket Women 2011 was not offered a contract for the new season by the club.
