BBC tryouts for 8-14 under teams Aug. 6-7

Posted by BPV on Jun 25 2022 at 09:21PM PDT in 2021

The Bettendorf Baseball Club (BBC) is expanding teams to all levels — 8-under to 14-under — with tryouts the weekend of Aug. 6-7.

The BBC is a partnership between Bettendorf-Pleasant Valley Youth Baseball and Bettendorf High School’s baseball program to offer a mixture of BPV league play with extra baseball in weekend tournaments in the area.

The BBC program launched a successful “beta” team in the fall of 2020 that currently competes together as a 13-U club in BPV’s Juniors Division and USSSA events in the region.

The Aug. 6-7 tryouts are for 2023 BBC teams. The BHS coaching staff and players are conducting the tryouts and will choose the teams. Please circle these dates and times on your calendar:

Crow Creek 4-plex (fields No. 10 & 11)

8-under: 1 p.m.
9-U & 10-U: 3 p.m.


11-U & 12-U: 1 p.m. at Crow Creek 4-plex (fields No. 8 & 9)
13-U & 14-U: 4 p.m. at Saldivar Field at Devils Glen Park

A Q&A informational meeting about the program is scheduled for Sunday, July 31 at the 7 p.m. under the pavilion at the Crow Creek Park 4-Plex.

To qualify for any of the BBC teams, players cannot be older than the age listed as of May 1, 2023.

NOTE: The BBC is specifically for current Bettendorf Community Schools students and their families! Separate BPV tournament teams for Pleasant Valley Schools (and students from other schools feeding into BPV) 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!)

We have had a very successful “beta” run with our current 13-U BBC team, and we look forward to expanding our program across all age levels this coming year.

Please share this invitation to join the BBC program widely!
