    Average Speed for a 12U pitcher?? and Off season prep to get ready for Season,,,,

    Just from a curiosity standpoint, were these girls bigger than most of the other 12u girls or about average/normal size?

    Riseball (thumb off grip)

    Thanks for your response. I’m not sure this grip will be for my DD. She has played around with a couple of grips and thought she may try this one. I was worried about hand size. She is a couple of months away from 12 but a decent size kid.

    Riseball (thumb off grip)

    I was reviewing this old riseball thread: https://www.discussfastpitch.com/softball-pitching/31102-riseball-question-2.html Does anyone have a good picture of the thumb off grip that I could show DD for her to give it a try? Thanks, Josh

    Redcord Workout

    DD wants to do the Redcord workout Java describes in the Drive Mechanics thread. The problem is I can't find a Redcord system anywhere. Has anyone used the TRX suspension system for the workout? Thanks, Josh

    How fast should the wind-up/delivery be?

    This comment got me thinking. My DD still struggles at times with a straight/locked arm on the downswing. I've never considered this as a potential cause. I don't think it is the case for her but how can one tell if the upswing is too fast? Not sure how to teach slow to the load and explode...

    Pitching videos

    I've shown her clips like the one Shaker has provided etc. and she just can't seem to figure it out. She's a pretty smart kid and really takes coaching well....I just am not sure what to do/tell her to do to help her. Just a dumb bucket dad who has benefited from some really kind people on...

    Pitching videos

    I wanted to post a few videos of regular motion since y’all took a look at the 2-step. Still need lots of work to get off by 3:00. I’m sure there are other things as well... Just for reference DD is 10...will turn 11 in a couple months. Josh https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=dzsC0plnT9A...

    Working on Drive (2-step)

    Maybe a touch better? Still have work to do to get off by 3:00... We talked about her shoulders and worked on it as we threw. Will continue to concentrate on it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h9K6jZgooRs Josh

    Working on Drive (2-step)

    Thanks everyone! We're going to give it another shot this afternoon. We'll also work to correct the shoulder rotation...good stuff as always. Josh

    Working on Drive (2-step)

    In an effort not to wear out Ken B, I thought I'd post a video here for feedback. DD (10) really needs to improve her drive so we've worked on the 2-step the last couple practices. We've watched Java's videos a few times but just not sure if she is doing the 2-step as it should be done. The...

    Compression sleeve

    DD really likes to wear a compression sleeve. She has an evoshield youth size and it will not stay up longer than a few pitches before she has to pull it up. She is not a small 10yo. Is there another brand that someone has had better luck with?
