My 10 year old has been pitching for almost 2 years. She has done very well. Last year the team that she played for was a tournament team so they played league (2 -4 games a week) and 3-4 tournaments a month. The problem was she was the only pitcher. She pitched as many as 7 games in one day. We were new to softball so we didnt know anything about overuse but did have concerns that we voiced to her pitching coach only to be told that we should be happy that she has all that mound time and that it wasnt too much pitching. Needless to say she has a new pitching coach. Towards the end of last year her mechanics started changing with her arm circle. She was beginning to short arm it alot and is continuing to do it now and has lost her control and speed. Her pitch is very scattered looking. Could this be overuse syndrome? Is there anything that we can do to help her?
