Bettendorf-Pleasant Valley Youth Baseball (BPV) is excited to announce that Bettendorf High School has partnered with BPV to create the Bettendorf Baseball Club (BBC).

The BBC is a program to allow BPV participants additional baseball opportunities outside of, and in tandem with, BPV league play to help develop well-rounded baseball players for the BHS program.

Along with participating in all BPV activities (games, practices, camps, clinics), players selected from a tryout by a BBC panel are eligible to also participate in all unique BBC team activities (weekend/travel tournaments/games, practices, offseason workouts and opportunities to learn from current BHS baseball players and coaches).

The BBC teams will wear uniforms designed by BHS in the appearance to match the BHS varsity uniforms.

If you are interested in joining the BBC program, please fill out the form at the following link:

An informational meeting for the BBC program also is Monday, Aug. 10 from 7-7:45 p.m. at the Crow Creek Park 4-Plex (please bring lawn chairs).

This informational meeting is an opportunity to hear about our long-term vision for the BBC program from BHS varsity head coach Blake Hanna and other board members.

We are committed to developing a quality organization with well-led teams that will cultivate future Bulldogs. This exploratory event will feature Q&A and allow us to assess interest and potential timelines.

Some basic details: BBC plans for teams to develop both by playing at their current age level in weekend USSSA tournaments and by “playing up” in BPV weeknight games, a combination that will help develop well-rounded, multi-position athletes.

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