In 1970 thirteen boy’s teams participated in the first ever BCI tournament. Since that time over 40 states have been represented in BCi tournaments, in addition to teams from five provinces of Canada and Mexico as well as Australia and Scotland. In the not-too-distant past BCi had established an excellent reputation for strong competition, first class facilities and best organized tournaments in the country. BCi had come to represent quality – proven by the more than 10,000 teams that participated in BCi tournaments.
BCi Nationals are NCAA sanctioned tournaments for players fourteen years and older, and we are looking to bring this high-quality event back soon. This sanctioning provides opportunity for players to be seen by division one college coaches, and BCi's alumni list includes more than 150 players that have gone on to the next level (NBA and WNBA).
Our objective remains the same: to be dedicated to helping young people become better citizens through the medium of basketball. We want to take and use the energies and interests of youth and channel them into healthy pursuits that teach sportsmanship and teamwork, and build personal confidence. These objectives are achieved through local, state and national events.
It is our mission to live up to this historical reputation once again, and even go beyond to re-establish BCi as the gold standard for youth basketball tournament events in the state of Oklahoma and across the nation.
A new era begins!

What they say:
Coming into the Shock in 7th grade I really did not know what to expect. All the teams I played on before were always just thrown together last minute and disorganized. I always saw different levels of Shock teams at tournaments and wondered what it would be like to play for them. In 7th grade I decided to go to a practice and see what it was all about. Right off the bat as I played with the girls, I realized that it was more than just basketball. It was like being with a second family. They took me in and treated me like I had been with the program for years. As I played and trained with them I learned so much. From simple footwork, to ball-handling, and helping my shot change tremendously. All the training helped me to become a better shooter and a better defensive player. Playing with the Shock not only helped me on the court but off the court also. No matter where we were and what tournament we played in, coaches always found a way to have church on Sunday's. That helped me learn more about the Lord and helped me with my decision in where to go to college. Playing with the Shock throughout the years helped me to become a college athlete and helped me get to the college I wanted to be at. Overall I don't think I would be where I am now, without them.
