I know this post is old, but any chance at an update on how it turned out deeper into the program?According to the National Fastpitch Coaches Association (NFCA), the Average college softball overhand throwing velocity is 58-59 MPH.
Above Average is considered 60-62 MPH.
Exceptional is considered 63+ MPH.
We time them throwing at a coach (standing behind a screen), just like you time a pitcher behind a catcher.
We are a 14U-A team - we are 3 weeks into the Wasserman High Level Throwing program (the whole team is doing it)
10 were in the 46-49 range when we started, 2 were in the 54-56 range (one had done the program before, the other just has a cannon)
Week 3: (this morning)
The 10 are now in the 50-52 range, the 2 that started higher - one is at 58, the other hit 60
Our goal is get all of them to 60+ by week 10. I don't know if that is realistic, but early results have been very positive.
