In 2012, the NFCA collected the following data about college softball PLAYER overhand throwing speed:
Average = 58-59mph Above Average = 60-62mph Exceptional = 63+mph
In 2012, the NFCA collected the following data about college softball RECRUIT overhand throwing speed:
From the 8 major NFCA recruiting camps less than 5 girls in each camp tested at 60mph or above.
Only 40 out of 4,771 players total broke the 60mph mark! * Wasserman, Austin
Numerous studies done by Dr. James Andrews, an overhand throwing specialist, show that improper throwing patterns and kinematics lead to both elbow and shoulder injury * Fleisig, Glenn S., et al.
