For someone playing -.4 years? Like 100'.

But in all seriousness, and this is coming from someone that is 16, how young you are is not really an excuse anymore unless you are like <13. It's all about EXPERIENCE. Just keep working hard and you'll get there at the same pace the adults do, and watch out for the adults that throw tantrums when you do .

If you want an example though, I can (consistently) throw about 300' backhand and 300 forehand

I played with a younger kid in my last tournament, and he was a great player, his driving distance maxed out at around 300, but he could putt like a machine, kid was money inside of 40'. It's easier to practice putting (it doesn't take nearly as much room) and will improve your game way more than a longer drive. Focus on putting and let the d come later.

There's no right answer.

I coached kids' baseball for decades. On a team of 10-12 year olds, there would always be a vast range of abilities. The top pitchers could throw harder than most adult coaches. The weakest couldn't make a throw from third base to first.

I once knew a 12-year-old who could throw about 350'. He was a good athlete but not a super athlete; his advantage was he started playing at age 8 or 9 and played a lot.

As far as he/she can, or the same distance as the basket. Which ever is more appropriate for that throw. You're welcome.
