Does anyone have a good idea of what the avg pitching speeds are for 10U, 12U, 14U in Competitive classifications?
I really don't want 'opinions', I would like to have reliable, speed gun information... Not trying to be a smart a$$, but none of us have calibrated eyeballs... LOL I would like to know an average range, like 38-42, and a rare, like top speed 48 or something.... thanks!!

Range of Speed (in MPH) for Fastpitch Softball Pitchers by Age
10U 12U 14U High School College/ Pro Fastball avg 37-42 44-50 49-54 53-59 59-64 Top <5% (48-53) (53-59) (56-61) (60-65) (65-72) (50s are rare) (upper 50s rare) (60s are rare) (>65 very rare)
This was from a chart that was a few years old and I have updated based on velocities I have personally clocked throughout the Nation at Tournaments and Camps.
