? for those who have worked with kids 10-16…
My son is 13.5… smaller, late developer (5.5" 105 lbs). Has been throwing regularly since age 6, pitching since 10. Excellent mechanics & arm care & pitching specific exercises. Avg athlete.
He stalled out in velo from 11 to 13… literally was sitting @ 58 for 2 years. Legit guns & out of hand. Last 6 mos he picked up 4-5 & sits 63ish.
We dont worry about velo… I own a gun & used it twice this yr… we look at preseason & post season velo & CU to FB differentials.
He’s been a steady worker & growing steady (no spurts).
For those who have parented pitchers or trained in that 10 thru puberty age, what are the key stages, factors or predicators when kids jump in velo, stall & peak out?
