Youth Pitcher Stretching and Warm Up Program


#1

In the article 13 Ways to Prevent Pitching Arm Injuries in Youth Pitchers Ages 7/14, the second is:

Make certain pitchers have and use a proper stretching and warm up program before throwing.

Would it be possible for someone here to point me to a good program that I can use with my 12 y/o to ensure that this is done before bullpen and, more importantly, mound appearances in games? I will need something that can realistically be done in around 15 min. or less to ensure it gets done right and won’t conflict with time compressed nature of Sunday double-headers and tournament play.

Thank you.

Any of these dynamic stretches will point you and your son in the direction of success:
