    Course Overview

    As practitioners working within sports performance and with general populations alike, it is vital that coaches have a solid understanding of the epidemiology related to sports-related injuries, the associated risk factors with such injuries, and how such injuries can be prevented via effective Performance Training. The Sports Injury Science Webinar Series aims to provide coaches with a greater level of knowledge of such injuries, their causes, and evidence-based preventive strategies.

    The Sports Injury Science Webinar Series explores the overall injury prevention process within strength and conditioning practice, the epidemiology and the injury risk factors associated with Achilles tendonitis, lateral ankle sprains, patellofemoral pain, ITB syndrome, lower back pain and lumbopelvic training, shoulder impingements, overuse injuries, and the research findings on injury prevention specific to each of these common injuries.
