Development and Evaluation of an Injury Reduction Programme in Yorkshire Schools
Youth sport involvement has numerous benefits, whilst there is also the risk of injury. The increased participation and training may increase numbers of sports injuries, if risk factors are not identified and mitigated. Sports and recreational injuries are the leading cause of injury in youth in many countries (Emery, 2010). This project will undertake a series of studies to 1) Develop and implement an injury audit and physical testing battery, 2a) Develop an injury reduction programme, 2b) identify the challenges and barriers to the successful intervention of an injury reduction programme, and 3) implement and evaluate an injury reduction programme.
