Throwing year round

I am 17 years old, and i was wondering if it is ok to throw and pitch year round?

Every pitcher needs a break from throwing and then you need to condition for about 3 months and gradually start to throw in off-season.

The
http://www.asmi.org][u]ASMI[/u
recommends shutting down from throwing for 2-3 months per year. You can still condition and do other activities during that time.

So are they saying you shouldn’t throw for 2-3 months, or you shouldn’t pitch for 2-3 months

Yeah, you definetely need to rest.

I believe the ASMI’s recommendation is no overhead throwing of any type.
