About Our Club

Mission and Objectives

The Club is a non-profit corporation with the mission of providing boys (grades 3 through 8) and girls (grades 5 through 8), residing in Novi, Michigan with opportunities to develop fundamental basketball skills to enhance players’ game and competitiveness in a positive environment of sportsmanship and teamwork.

The Novi Cats offer a higher level of competition than Novi Parks and Recreation.  As such, competitive tryouts are conducted each year for the formation of the most competitive teams.

The Club’s programs and operations are funded primarily by players and their families through an annual participation fee.  Annual fees usually range from $300 to $450 per player.  Financial assistance may be available through local governmental programs and through assistance provided by the Club.  In general, the Club works to ensure that no player is denied the opportunity to participate because of financial hardship.

Club programs are sponsored by Novi Community Education.  For a per-player fee, Community Ed provides the Club with access to facilities of Novi Community School District for practices, open gym and clinics.  The Club also works cooperatively with Novi Parks & Recreation to ensure that appropriate levels of competitive basketball are available to all interested players.

League Affiliations


The primary competitive league for Novi Cats teams is the Big Cat Basketball League (“Big Cat”).  League information is available at  Big Cat is a private league that has no official affiliation with the Novi Cats.  The main Big Cat league plays in the winter (December through March).  All Novi Cats teams play in the Big Cat winter league.  Games are played on Sundays (each team plays two games every Sunday) at High School and Middle School gyms in South Lyon and Novi.

Big Cat also offers a Fall League (grades 5 through High School) and a Spring League (grades 5 through 8).  Novi Cats teams can enter to play in these leagues.  Players often have conflicts with other sports during Fall and Spring League.  It is customary that a Novi Cats team in Fall or Spring league may be composed of a mix of players from the Cats Green and Cats White teams.
