In the event player leaves team BEFORE February 1st, 25 day penalty period starts April 1. If player leaves AFTER April 1, penalty period starts the day player contacts team of departure.

If player is released (does not quit), player cannot be rostered on another D1 Driven team until 25 day penalty period finishes.

If player decides to leave and play for a non D1 Driven team, their decision is final.

The D1 Driven Process
YOUR team is YOUR team. D1 Driven Baseball Club wants to help your team get even better, develop your athletes for college and pro baseball, and provide more accountable baseball resources to your team, players, and parents. Teams are required to participate in the D1 Driven Player Development System, abide by D1 Driven recruiting policies, and be a part of everything D1 Driven. Your season, player selection, tournaments, team name, uniforms, financials, and league is directed by your team. All teams will be considered D1 Driven affiliated teams and be a part of the D1 Driven baseball community.

Benefits of Becoming a D1 Driven Baseball Team
D1 Driven provides full logistical support in scheduling your CHOSEN tournaments, procurements of fields, league, uniforms, marketing, insurance, web site, and recruiting. The D1 Driven Player Development System will immerse your athletes into the world of college and professional baseball as our Roving Instruction Staff conducts "off season" and "in season" individual and team workouts. Additionally, 10 college baseball coaching staffs and their programs will be actively involved in training during the off season to bring more showcasing and interaction between prospect and college baseball coach. Fundraising, an exclusive college baseball camp, and the D1 Driven Summer Combine combine to build the D1 Driven experience for everyone.

World Class Support
All training is held at Big League Edge Performance Baseball during the off season and regular season, as BLE shuts down its entire facility to cater to D1 Driven teams. Our roving instruction staff works ONLY for D1  Driven athletes and teams- building a focus upon your organization. A national network of baseball resources and personnel is incorporated into everything D1 Driven. Additionally, we have a six person support squad that caters to your team's every off field need.
