2015 Soccer Summit

The NCAA Sport Science Institute (SSI) hosted its first ever sport-specific summit (NCAA Soccer Summit) on February 22 and 23, 2015 at the NCAA headquarters. The purpose of the NCAA Soccer Summit was to develop a strategic agenda to be pursued for the improvement of health and safety of not just NCAA soccer student-athletes, but soccer athletes of all ages. This summit also represented the NCAA’s first attempt to address issues affecting the full breadth of the athlete development continuum within a single sport. To do this, we collaborated with stakeholders outside of the NCAA, including U.S. Soccer, U.S. Youth Soccer, the National Federation of State High School Associations, Major League Soccer, and FIFA.  

This report is not a consensus document, but rather represents a strategic agenda that the NCAA SSI intends to pursue collaboratively with our partners in the coming months and years. We believe that the initiatives identified in this report provide the best opportunities to improve the health and safety of soccer athletes, both within the NCAA and across the entire continuum of competition and development.
