The Sydney Uni Flames have secured a key piece of their line-up with Keely Froling signing for a second WNBL season.

The 26-year-old was the joint winner of the Flames' MVP last season with Shyla Heal and her signing is a major boost for the Sydney team.

Froling joins Heal, Kalani Purcell and Kiera Rowe, all of whom have been secured for next season.

"I'm really excited to be back," said Froling, who was co-captain with Lauren Mansfield last season.

"Last year didn't go the way we wanted it to go, but I loved playing under Shane and I got better personally, so I'm coming back to win a championship and hopefully next year is the year."

Flames coach Shane Heal was delighted to get Froling locked away for another season.

"Keely is part of our foundations at the Flames. Her improvement over last season was immense as was her leadership over a tough season that including lots of challenges thrown our way," Heal said.

"Keely will once again play a critical leadership role as we look to build our roster.

"We make no secret of aiming to making the playoffs for the first time in six years and seriously compete for a championship."

Froling believes the Flames have set the groundwork for an improved showing next season.

"We played without an import and Loz (Lauren Mansfield) only played a handful of games so we were down three starters most games and sometimes four.

"The fight we showed as a group and the belief I have in Shane and the ownership, that's what made it a no brainer for me to come back."
