    Default Overhand throwing speed

    I would like some thoughts. I had my DD clocked yesterday on about 10 throws, mostly 62-63mph, range was 61-64. I have always known she had a pretty strong arm, but never thought it was anything special. Dont often get to use it fully unless in OF too. Her throws in IF are usually a bit reserved to prevent wild throw, just in time to get runner, but every now and then she lets a zinger fly for a close play.

    Is there any good #s for D1 athletes overhand throwing speeds for comparison?

    Those are good numbers for D1 athletes. I believe Cindy Bristow has some info on this on her website, softballexcellence.com

    DD attended Arizona's camp and they tested all athletes and gave them a comparison of their scores with the average DI athlete. Their sheet said average DI athlete's throw was 56mph. Your dd throws very fast. Most Gold coaches in our area want a 60mph throwing speed.

    Go to the NFCA web page. Each camp has posted results for overhand speed.
