    Default Catcher throwing from their knees

    Does anyone have any videos of Fastpitch catchers throwing from their knees? I have a catcher on my team that has a great arm and is working on throwing down to 2nd from her knees. So far she is pretty successful with it. I just want to see some videos of others to evaluate the form used. I have seen some pretty high level catchers do this I just can't find any video.

    How old is the catcher? I would be hesitant to encourage this at younger ages due to risk to the shoulder.

    She is 14 and does it relatively effortless.

    Here is more on this subject, from 4 yrs. ago.
    Should you teach young catchers to throw from the knees?

    Thanks Amy. I have scoured youtube and only found a couple videos.

    I really want to see it from a high level player to see what their basic form looks like.

    If you want, you could pm me your email. RVP blocks the send video option out on this one, but it does allow me to send single snapshots. I could send you a series of a dozen or so emails with a photo on each.
