Windmill Pitching And Age

2 posts in this topic

I took my daughter to a girls college softball game last year and she is wanting to learn to pitch. My question is can a child be too young to start pitching and maybe hurt the arm as in teaching the over arm curveball too young. Is the windmill pitching movement stressfull on the arm. My daughter is 9 years old and I would like to help her but not if it can cause arm problems.

Indicolt,

The windmill pitch will not put undue stress on your childs arm if it is done correctly. She is definately old enough to begin training as a windmill pitcher.

I would recommend that you find a good trainer in your local area. One that has been certified by Ernie Parker preferrably.

You can also check out some of the Ernie Parker Videos that we offer. You won't be disappointed in any of his video's.

Good Luck,

Schann
