Overuse Injuries and Periodization Data and Research

Collecting and analyzing data, and then using those data to make informed decisions, is central to what we do at the Sport Science Institute.

That’s why we started the NCAA Injury Surveillance Program in 1982 to provide current and reliable data on sports injury trends in college athletics, which is vitally important for NCAA student-athlete health and safety efforts. 

The Sport Science Institute also works closely with NCAA Research in support of efforts that promote a safe and healthy environment for college athletes competing in all sports.

NCAA Injury Surveillance Program

Collecting current and reliable data on sports injury trends in college athletics is vitally important for NCAA student-athlete health and safety efforts. The NCAA Injury Surveillance Program was created in 1982 as a pen-and-paper data collection surveillance program with the aim of collecting injury and exposure data in a variety of sports. Individual athletic trainers and sports teams from a single institution, or multiple athletic trainers and teams from a single institution may sign up for the Injury Surveillance Program.
