Sept. 14 or 15 tryouts for new 11U BPV tourney team

Posted by BPV on Sep 07 2022 at 10:11PM PDT in 2021

Tryouts for the BPV Thunder — a new 11-under “tournament team” for Bettendorf-Pleasant Valley Youth Baseball — are Sept. 14-15 (Wednesday or Thursday) from 5:30-7 p.m.

All of the tryout opportunities are at the Crow Creek Park 4-Plex (diamond number 8). Participants can be from any school and need only attend one of the tryout sessions — whichever best fits their family schedule.

The tryouts are in advance of the 2023 USSSA season. The 11-U BPV Thunder will be playing BPV games during the week next summer and 1-2 USSSA weekend tournaments per month starting in late March or early April depending on the weather.

Regardless of grade in school, players 11 years old and younger are eligible to play on this team. Players turning 12 years old prior to May 1, 2023 are only eligible to play if they are currently in the fifth grade. Players who turn 13 before Aug. 1, 2023 are not eligible for 11-U USSSA baseball tournaments.

This opportunity is separate from the BBC (Bettendorf Baseball Club) partnership between BPV and the Bettendorf High School baseball program.

If you plan to attend the tryout, please send an email to with parent name, player name and mobile number so we can ensure the tryout is able to accommodate those interested.
