Message to Parents of Youth Throwers
This program has been developed for the benefit of your child. If your child shows talent and you think he or she may have a level of ability that allows him or her to pursue throwing at a higher level, THE LAST thing you want is to see your child's future in throwing ended by an injury that could have been prevented. These injuries are very common, especailly among baseball pitchers. However, they are being seen with increasing frequency in female softball players because of the extreme amount of overhead throwing fielders and catchers do. We are seeing them starting at age 10, and increasing in frequency the older the child gets, through about age 19. SafeThrow screening is very simple and quick and can identify players at risk for future injury. Simple stretches and throwing mechaninc adjustments can prevent these injuries and allow your child to throw as long as she or he desires; who knows - maybe all the way through college or beyond!
