Tryouts for 2022 teams in the Bettendorf Baseball Club (BBC) are Thursday & Friday, August 19-20.

Players in the 8-under to 12-under categories (as of May 1, 2022) are at the Crow Creek Park 4-Plex from 5-7 p.m.

Players in the 13-under and 14-under categories (as of May 1, 2022) are under the lights of “Smitty Field” (Crow Creek Park diamond No. 5) from 7:30-9:30 p.m.

Players need only attend one tryout session.

In 2020, Bettendorf-Pleasant Valley Youth Baseball (BPV) began a new partnership with the Bettendorf High School baseball program called the Bettendorf Baseball Club (BBC).

There was a successful 12u team during the 2021 season, mixing weeknight play and practices in the BPV with action in select weekend travel tournaments. The August tryouts are the next step to expanding the program to additional age levels.

NOTE: The BBC is specifically for current Bettendorf Community Schools students and their families! Separate BPV tournament teams for Pleasant Valley (and other school) students also are offered but unaffiliated with a high school program at this time (we share those tryout details when available and as teams are forming!)

The BBC is committed to building a quality organization with well-led teams that will cultivate future BHS Bulldog baseball players and confident, responsible, hardworking young men.

BBC teams develop both by playing at their current age level in weekend USSSA tournaments and by “playing up” in BPV weeknight games, a combo that fosters well-rounded, multi-position athletes.

BBC players will be eligible for both all regular BPV activities (games, practices, camps, clinics) and unique BBC team activities, including chances to learn from BHS baseball players and coaches.

BBC teams will wear uniforms designed by BHS coaches and BBC board members to reflect the colors and styles of Bettendorf High School Baseball.

While travel baseball normally includes significant costs, the BBC is committed to offering opportunities to players from a broad range of economic backgrounds.
