The Bentonville Basketball Club began in 2004 as the NWA Ice, and has developed into a district-based, regional competitive league for developing Bentonville Public School youth for high school basketball.

A nonprofit, volunteer, competitive sports organization, the BBC is dedicated to the development of physical, mental and moral attributes of young athletes from a Christ-centered perspective. Through participation in amateur basketball programs in Northwest Arkansas, we promote good sportsmanship and good citizenship. The BBC provides our youth an opportunity to develop their basketball skills to the highest level through participation in local and national sporting event networks.
