DD plays for two teams and pitches on average about 8 innings a week. There is also at least one 1 hour pitching session or practice each week. She is 13 1/2 years old.
A colleague/Softball trainer that I know told me that my daughter should be pitching more - in order to get better.
What is the norm for pitching? Is there a norm? At 13 1/2 years old should she be throwing twice as much per week? How much is too much?
I was also advised that DD should be icing her arm down after "every" game. Whether it hurts or not. Is this a good recommendation?
Thoughts and opinions welcome.
