Lady Cats Hoops Club is a youth basketball program in Cassville that encourages all young girls to come out and enjoy the game of basketball. The director of the Hoops Club is Desiree Corn, and she works in coordination with Cassville varsity girls basketball coach Chris Shore.

The program is set up for girls in third through sixth grade. Starting in October and running through the spring, there is an intramural league that allows all girls to participate on teams. They play on Saturdays on teams coached by the girls' parents.

From there, some girls are placed on traveling teams and play in various tournaments and leagues. Each grade has its own traveling team. The girls' uniforms and tournament entry fees for the traveling teams are paid for by the Lady Cats Hoops Club.
