If you compare her glove side and head to Ryan’s - his head is stacked over his belly button and glove is in front of his chest.

I agree - but bringing the chest to the glove seems to apply more to the overhand pitch than a flat ground or non-pitching motion.

Or do you think he was talking about all throws?

I assume he was talking pitching, but still think it applies to most throwing in general.

I’ve read Wassernan say a tuck isn’t necessary but I will have read more about what he says about lead arm action

If you look at her from the front her head looks like it is resting on her left shoulder..lol.
I would be hesitant to try and change arm path a ton if she has been healthy and she is accurate. I would attack it from a glove side approach and see if that doesn’t fix it. The reason I like a lot of the Wassermann stuff is because it helps pattern the arm without making the thrower think about being overtly mechanical (if that makes sense). I’m also a big fan of getting kids running and throwing (think long toss). I feel max effort throwing forces the body to organize itself around that goal - throwing it farther. Over time she will work out how best to accomplish that goal.

Agree with lead side..I said front shoulder in my initial post but like I said my analysis abilities for throwing are limited..

Her trail leg seems to be internally rotating correctly, but the right side of her hip seems to be stuck - it’s not getting pulled through.

I think that’s what’s setting off your “something doesn’t look right” sensors.

But I’m at a loss as to how to fix that - other than saying “rotate your hips more”.
