    Have someone video you throwing the ball so you can see exactly what you are doing.
    Last year my son started out throwing about 68-69' then dropped back to only about 60'. I could see some problems with his technique but he was not doing what he thought he was doing. We took video of him practicing 2 or 3 times and he watched them and could see what he was doing wrong and figured out how to correct his form. His throws quickly jumed to 85-86'
    Good Luck.
