Injury and illness are a part of everyday life for most athletes. When our athletes are pushed to the limit of their capabilities during sport preparation and competition, injury often occurs. When injury occurs, a list of negative events follows. Among other things,
- Injury may predispose athletes to subsequent injury
- Psychological impact of injury often precludes continued participation
- The team suffers by having one less player
- There is a financial burden to the athlete and the team
This is why protecting athletes and doing all we can to prevent injuries in training and competition should be the top priorities by those in whom they have entrusted their sporting success.
This course will provide an historical perspective on injury prevention and will answer the question, “Is it possible to prevent injury?” If it is indeed something we can do, how we do it and how we foster cooperation by others in the coaching and sports medicine community will be presented in such a way that changes can be made immediately.

what former students have to say
I have been blessed to work with thousands of students/course attendees over the years and each of them has helped me at least as much as I’ve been able to teach them. I am grateful to have the opportunity to work with so many great people!
