Lady Cats Program Features



The Lady Cat's organization has made a significant investment in communication tools to ensure coaches, players and parents are informed on all club happenings and team schedules.  All teams have a Team Snap site where coaches can post game & practice times, record win-loss record, send emails and text alerts, and show off team photos. 

Twitter, Instagram and Facebook are also used to deliver messages, club events, and team successes.  Links provided at the bottom of the website...Follow us!


Skills Development

The Lady Cats program is a Skills Based Program with it's primary focus being individual player development.  The stronger each player is individually, the stronger the teams will be. Great players create Great Teams.  Due to this focus, we dedicate half of our practice time each week to skills work.  We want to build all around basketball players, not position players.

To have the most effective skills nights, we combine all teams per grade level in the gym to optimize our ability to run large group transition drills, perform position specific drills, and to develop each player equally.  It also creates an awesome atmosphere for teamwork and player enthusiasm.  The skills practices are designed by the Development Team and the team coaches themselves.


Practice Structure

The teams practice 2 times per week with half of practice time devoted to individual player skill development and the other half team principles.

3rd - 1 hr skills practice each week, 1 hour team practice 
4th - 1 hr skills practice each week, 1 hour team practice 
5th- 1 hr skills practice each week, 1.5-2 hour team practice
6th – 8th:  These teams will have two- 2 hour practices each week.  The first 45 min -1 hour will be all skills focus work.  The remaining time will be team principles.    



Lady Cats coaches are both paid and volunteer coaches. We work hard to find coaches that value the mission and philosophy of our program.  We look at our coaches as 'one staff' working together to build strong players not just on their teams, but as a club overall.  Our coaches are former high school and college players, current semi-pro players, and men & women who coach other sports in addition to basketball.  Our veteran coaches are always training our new coaches, making the caliber of Lady Cats coaches exceptional over the years.  Furthermore, since this is a girls program, we also strive to have a strong female coaching presence in all of our gyms.   

Leagues and Tournaments

Lady Cats teams play in the Conqueror Basketball League (CBL).  Level of play (Gold, Silver or Bronze) is determined by the coach of each team.  As for tournaments, each grade will be given an allotment amount for tournament registrations.  Older grades will play in more tournaments than the younger grades.  On average, teams will play between 24-40 games per season.
