Juniors how far do you throw?

Well since theres a thread for grandmaster distance, i would like to know how far juniors throw. Please state the age of yourself or any juniors you know and tell me how far the throw. I am 13 and throw 265 and 300 on good days. I want something to strive for as i am always looking to gett better. This info will also help with the youth league i am hoping to run this spring. I will help me determine if i need shorter tees just for juniors

When I was 13 I could throw 300' accurately. Forehand only.

We had a local guy who won the distance comp at Am Worlds in Rochester at the age of 16. I think his throw was over 500' into a headwind.

Great thread! I applaud your efforts to bring players your age into the sport!
As I am only 48 years young, I won't be able to contribute anything other than support.

My son who is 9, averages about 150-160 ft with his backhand. His primary drivers are a Lat64 Opto Diamond(145g) and a 134g Starlite Mamba.

My kid is 9 and throws about 175. I give the little punk about four years before he's wiping the floor with my a$$.

I'm 18, so I'm only barely a junior, but I throw somewhere around 400.

My brother is 16. He throws about 430 hyzer distance and with a good wind and crush can push it out to about 500. He started as a forhand only player when he was younger and maxed out at about 300. I taught him a backhand when he was 14 and now he's a monster.

Oh, I should probably mention that he had a growth spurt last year. Grew about a foot and that added about 100 ft to his distance. His usable forhand distance is about 350, but more comfortable up to 320 or so. He's now 6'4" 170 lbs.
