What is the mean time for a 60 yard dash because that a 14 year old and also a 15 year old.I can"t seem come get any kind of straight answers and also the dads who tell me their child runs 6.9 or 7.2 are just inflating the truth.I had one dad make an oath his boy ran a 7.4 and also his child is 14 and fast but when that ran he median 7.99.My kid suffered a setback critical year early to major surgery for testicular torsion. His testosrone levels were low and currently he is regaining to regular levels again therefore he functions so hard. His defensive skills are over average and he plays choose and constantly start. His batting is acquiring stronger all the time. The is no the tallest 5" 3" but he is about 120 and really very strong now.His time right now is 8.2 in the 60 and also he was guned in ~ 69 mph. He is a 3rd/SS/2nd/LF and can key if needed. That is at this time working through a strength and also speed coach. The was to run the 60 critical year in ~ 9.2 so he has made an excellent improvement.Any believed are really much welcomed.

i feel where you are coming from but it"s a tough question to answer. Could be easier to answer for a certain position. Ie., I have tendency to think a "typical" 14 year old catcher in ~ 8.0just mine thoughts and observations after see a totality bunch the catchers run 60sETA Your child is moving right into a significant growth stage. Be patient and see just how it transforms out. Mine favorite speed drill is 80% expression sprints increase hills because that 12-15 sec each. Additionally make certain he is not running flat footed. High knee omitted drills ~ above the toes

Mine more than likely isn"t typical yet I think he ran about an 8.6 in ~ 14yo. At 16yo the ran a 7.6. 6 months later he ran a 7.2. A year after that he ran a 6.8. The 6.8 to be on a quick track. He ran a many bases in practice, ran a lot of sprints and did a the majority of squats, etc.

for some additional reference, in ~ 14U in Feb the his 8th grade year, my boy ran a 7.64 at a showcase. This previous December at 17U, that ran a 6.59 in ~ a showcase. In ~ the last week, he ran a 4.4 40 as one of the pre-season football tests...He has always been quick, however the coaches never pointed out him as soon as they talked about the speed on their team till this year...As much as the arm goes, ago at 14U, my child was gunned at 72 in that showcase...don"t understand if castle gunned him at the December showcase critical winter...I"d estimate mid-80s, yet I"m Dad...The coaches have constantly said he had actually a cannon though...Good happy to your son!

This past weekend my kid attended a tryout for a high level program which included 14 and 15 year olds. There were probably approximately 100-125 boys in this age selection at the tryout. I was notified by one of the coaches the the fastest time for the 14 and also 15 year olds to be 7 flat. Over there were number of from 7.0-7.5, however most were over 7.5 with some even possibly exceeding 9 seconds. The time were handled grass, in cleats, starting from a baseball start.

over there is also a lot of you deserve to learn around the 60some examples:- to run in a straight line (pretty apparent why)- discover running mechanics- get momentum walk on starts- I provided to run at the end up line and lose part time. I had to learn to go v the lineThere are a ton that "tricks" and also techniques the you deserve to learn online. I don"t want to give away every my tricks, however you can find most of them digital or by talking to men that have been running them for a while.

My kid will be 15 this month and also has been timed about 5 or 6 time in the 60 because he to be 13. The variety has to be 6.7+ come 7.4. Every hand timed. Ns think some of the variance is because of the male with the avoid watch, the surface and what form shoes he was wearing. We did a 6 week resolve a trainer critical year and he knocked 2 10ths off his 60 and 40.To price you inquiry I think the mean time will be around 8.0 or probably a tiny higher.

I saw quite a couple of 60"s this past summer because that my son and his team members who are in that age range.

My kid is no what ns would think about fast, typical to listed below average in ~ best. He typically ran roughly 8.0. The men I taken into consideration fast usually ran about 7.2-7.0. These to be 14 year olds who still had a many of cultivation to do.

The CF top top the team is the fastest boy I have ever seen in person. He was 6.6-6.5.

At the tryouts because that the HS travel program my son plays because that there to be 150 children there and only 8 ran sub 7.0 times.

I think a most dads exaggeration 60 times, just like they carry out pitching speeds. Fact is the for human beings in general 7.0 in the 60 is yes, really fast. The percent of human being who deserve to throw a ball 80 MPH let alone 90 MPH is tiny.

If you sit roughly youth baseball games, you would certainly think there"s a entirety generation of children who throw like Nolan Ryan, run choose Rickey Henderson and hit prefer Hank Aaron.

Rob T -- Amen to the statement.My 2016 is relatively fast and has run 60s in ~ a camp, a tryout and prospect. At 14 that ran 7.3 in ~ a D-1 university camp. In ~ 15 in ~ a travel team tryout, he was a 7.5 in tennis shoes (forgot to put his spikes on) in lengthy grass, then did a college prospect camp 2 months later and also ran 7.6.

I think a lot needs to do with human being reaction time. A coach through a stop watch telling a son to go, at a distance they walked off, is never ever going to it is in accurate.


My 2016 ran a 7.44 and also throw 87.Tho he is one of the more difficult throwers in the area.I guess the is no as slow as i think that him.These stats were done in a gym.It to be the winter that his student in the first year year(15) soccer schedule go not permit him to take it test his soph. Year.


My 2018 just ran a 5.1 40, and also he is generally one of the fastest kids on the football and baseball areas for his age. The is in some rate training right currently (really good, scientifically based) that has guaranteed to knock .2 to .3/10 that a second off of that time. A 5.1 (40) comes the end to about a 7.65 (60)or much less (his begin is what death his time). Not good but not poor at his age. I would guess he would run a 7.4 - 7.5(60) appropriate now since he gets quicker as that goes (and, as soon as again, his begin kills him). Ns hope the can gain under 5.0 level as an eight grader, after ~ this training. The sky is the limit from there. I wouldsay, simply from what I have seen native year to year, and comparing the to other travel team kids, that a7.5 (60) is pretty great for 14 y/o. Too many of cultivation yet come do.


You might try timing the in the 60 just to see how a 40 time translates.

Everyone starts indigenous 0 mph and also then accelerates until they reach top speed. Assuming great conditioning, the jogger should maintain top speed in between the 40 mark and the 60 mark. Just guessing, I"d think a man running a 5.1 in the 40 would certainly run other in the 7.0-7.1 range in the 60. A 2018 is an 8th grader, so who at that speed who can hope to cut time off year by year because that the next 4 years would certainly be someone I"d expect to see develop into a true burner.


I know that the 60 has become almost ritualistic in nature however it tho baffles me sometimes with the prestige attached to it. My 2016 (6"1,180) operation the 60 in the 7.2-7.4 variety (about 15 times), once he is no pitching or playing 3rd he dram OF. One more full time the player operation a 6.6-6.8 ~ above a continual basis. Difficulty is the kid has no instincts, the does not obtain to balls the he should and also my son (the slower) makes it to some that he need to not. So while i recognize the importance of speed i additionally know its not the end every one of being a an excellent player


I fully agree.The factor that the fast kids that room playing baseball have tendency to acquire the nod is friend can"t teach fast.In general the difficulties you describe are believed fixable.Its the very same mind collection with under 6 foot pitchers.I understand who greg Maddox is.There room exceptions.Generally if you have two children that perform something the same(pitching) the taller boy gets picked.If you have two outfielders one is average but really has some wheel while the other gets an ext out of his an abilities than one would certainly expect and has only typical speed.The quick guy gets picked.Its assumed he is fixable.You can"t teach "speed and size"


I witnessed this ~ above Baseball America website and it seems pertinent here. Ns think this is a an excellent summary that the prominence of speed and the importance of knowing just how to run, and also how scouts account because that the difference. The "thumb top top the scale" comment is in recommendation to exactly how a reconnaissance might adjust the raw grade increase or downward to account for these other factors that affect on-field performance.

"Traditionally, players’ speed grade is based on either his house to an initial time or his 60-yard dash time. That is a concrete time to base a great around, however it doesn’t really enable much leeway come account for instincts, understanding of how to obtain a lead, reading pitchers and also base stealing ability. Due to the fact that it’s a tool grade and also not a skill grade, there is some logic to the point, however base running professionals say that it’s harder come teach those skills than one could believe. Again, the write up and also possibly a thumb on the scale needs to account because that the differences in between a speedster v no clue of just how to stealing a bag and a slow runner however one v impeccable ability on the basic paths."


I composed a Google app to assist my boys rate up their 60 garden sprint. It"s a one-of-a-kind stopwatch they deserve to use themselves through 10, 20 and 40 yard separation time goals. It appears to be help my boys rate up.

The 60 to be my event. In sixth grade (12 yrs old) ns ran a 7.1. In high college (16 yr old) i ran 6.2. This time is fast sufficient to success the Seton room relays. I would certainly not suppose times today to be much faster. An mean time for a 14/15 yr old athlete because that the 60 would certainly be in the 7.0 range.


I know this is an larger post, however caught my eye because I was wanting to develop an ACCURATE60 garden baseline time for my 15U son. My kid is usually one of the faster kids on any team the plays on, however usually no the fastest. I freshly hand timed him in the 7.5 range. What"s funny is that once I shared that w/a father on his summer team that Dad didn"t believe me. That swears his child runs a 7.3 and also since my boy is quicker than his, mine son have to run close to 7 flat! Anyhow, I believe I came up with a really accurate method to measure up 60 times and everyone has actually the devices to perform it (or can download the device for free). That cost-free tool (Windows based) is Kinovea. It is a surprisingly an effective video evaluation tool (NO, I"m no affiliated at all). Ns went out through my young today, measured off 180" exactly. Marked his start and also finish lines and also handheld mine camera (set to 120 FPS) perpendicular come the finish line. I had my son setup come start and also he provided me a 10 sec "heads up" prior to his start to start recording. I started w/the camera solved on his start, so I might determine his exact start time. I then panned to the complete line wherein I captured the exact moment the crossed. Acquisition this video into the software, it to be then simple to setup a stopwatch (the software knows the resource video was taken in ~ 120fps) that starts the minute my child started his movement forward. That was just as easy to avoid the stopwatch in ~ the minute my child crossed the finish line. IMO, this technique (assuming the most modern-day cameras are relatively accurate in their timing) is MUCH more accurate than hand-timing. The results were a 7.39 an initial pass and 7.52 second pass. If anyone is interested in more details or desires to watch the video results you re welcome shoot me one IM and I share.

Thanks for the tip. I"ve regularly thought the a HTF time would be best measured by something like this approach, because without video clip it is really difficult -- or take away a ton of experience and also skill -- to get an accurate read.


7.00 is significant League mean in the 60. Very few 14 year olds run better than 7.00. Us had countless of the very best 14 year old football player in the entire nation at the nationally televised PG select Festival last year. Most all of them ran the 60. Many were in between 7 flat and 7.5, however none of them were 7 level or better.


Thanks, this is great, and very timely because that me. I"ve simply become mindful of the potential major differences between hand timing and also electronic. My child was hand timedtwice by two various coaches at two various events last summer, and also each time gained a 6.7. This year running indoor track to be hand time at 55 meter (a step much longer than 60 yards) in ~ 6.7. Simply recently, in the state fulfill he was electronically time in the 55 at 7.0.


During our SF Giants Area code tryouts at Fresno State, I all set the day-to-day schedule through the agree scouts. Over 200 university coaches and also pro scouts were in attendance.

the 2nd hour was to run the 60 yard. Together an extra test, ~ the 60 yard, I invite the Fresno State monitor coach to carry out instruction as to "proper" running. ~ the instruction us ran the 60 test again. There was a 5% development on the running times.

In all our AC tryouts and games for 17 years, I encouraged the scouts come share their

knowledge.

Ok, instead of do the efforts to define the process I employed w/Kinovea, I placed together a video, here is link to youtube. Please let me understand what girlfriend think in terms of specific measurement. Thanks! https://youtu.be/lcuZsWa8UHU

Have that play a 2nd sport where rate is key. Basketball, soccer or football. My son gained a lot much faster being chased by large angry men in football. These sporting activities are additionally conditioning heavy and working on your speed while enjoying a sports is a great way to do that.


Have to 2nd Dospeloteros suggestion. My 2017 played soccer all the way through last week, and I think it aided his speed a lot. He to be at 7.0 until Nov of Jr. Year, and also then knocked about .2 turn off his time by feather of Jr. Year, best after football ended. He"s been continuously at 6.8 ever since.


Winter Track assisted my 2018...went native a 7.8 loss of student in the first year year come a 6.9 (at PG event)summer before junior year...

Dalex,

Very cool. I appreciate you taking the time to share this info and video. Not sure who is having much more fun through this "baseball thing?" girlfriend or her son?? I"ve actually learned a lot about making sports videos ~ above this site, chiefly from Shane52. This adds a totally new chapter.

Thanks!


My guys were laser timed a couple of weeks back at Parisi rate school.

My 14.5 year old (8th grade) ran a 8.07.

My 15 (almost 16) year old (Soph) to be 7.15. That plays OF and also pitches. His showcase coach told me "7.15 is slightly over average for 15 practically 16 year old".

There was a freshman teammate there, and also he ran 6.96. The plays CF. He to be the fastest kid there that day.


If running is your "tool" (as that was key in son"s recruiting), or position dictates footspeed (CF/MI) climate it renders sense to look for someone who deserve to improve speed an approach (like a strength hitter--weight trainer, pitcher- pitching coach). Boy ran indoor track from sophomore to senior year in HS which teach him technique. I wasn"t surprised when his ideal baseball 60s were operation at showcases throughout the middle of indoor monitor season. At an early stage when you space prepping because that a showcase, uncover a football field which is straightforward to measure up 60 yards. The will give you some idea the times, and if girlfriend are constant in means you room timing son, you will certainly at the very least able to watch improvements, and also know when it is a an excellent time to have 60 clocked by "third party."


Something to keep in mind v anything involving a avoid watch. Residence to first, 60 yard, pop times, etc.

Don"t be surprised if dads time are much faster than scout times. The is regularly the case. I think it is due to the fact that dad desires to document the best possible time and also the scout desires to it is in extra certain he reports the exactly time. Over the years I"ve uncovered real times prefer laser, tend to be a little faster 보다 scouts, a small slower 보다 dads times. The is if the laser is provided correctly.

I can"t tell friend how plenty of times we have recorded 60 times and had dads tell us there should be a mistake. Whenever possible we will run the player again and I don"t recall ever seeing any big improvement, if any.

Its not because dads space trying come mislead anyone. It"s just organic to anticipate with the create finger (thumb) on a stopwatch. It can really make a huge difference in the much shorter times prefer H-1, or popular music times. Numerous will hear the popular music in catchers gloves to start the watch, but stop before the popular music at 2B. As soon as you go be sound ~ above one and eye sight on the other, you deserve to have a huge difference, especially when you anticipate at 2B. Together everyone knows the distinction in a tenth 2nd can be large when it comes to pop times.

I would indicate that dads or moms, it is in extra conservative and make sure your times are not as well fast. Her times won"t ever before count anyway, but you could be pleasantly surprised when your son compiles much better times once it go count. And also at least you won"t be disappointed if the doesn"t. Anytime a protect against watch is used there is a chance for inaccuracy because of the person element. Prefer I stated that inaccuracy tends to be in the direction of the slow-moving side on a scouts avoid watch (he desires to it is in sure). It has tendency to be towards the fast side top top a parents protect against watch (they desire the ideal possible).

Agree v PG stopwatch ingredient is tough. I think clearly velocities are what they are not too hard for a parental to take it those. But timing is hard. I just go by what the football coaches acquire for the 40. I figure if his 40 time is enhancing so will his home to an initial and 60 time. Cause for him gift a huge guy that mostly around the start and also getting all the mass going. Monitor season start in a week anda half. He will go work-related out through sprinters to work on his starts. While the won"t operation in meets should help him for both baseball and also football.
