understanding of injury risk factors and predictors is needed. Unfortunately, the vast majority of epidemiological studies performed on elite soccer athletes do not include the adolescent female population. 3 – 5 Adolescent females have unique risk factors, such as a rapid rate of skeletal growth that outpaces

standard approach for assessing movement quality that would increase musculoskeletal injury risk. 4 , 5 Athletes need an adequate amount of balance, core stability, and neuromuscular control to safely and effectively perform the necessary movements of their sport. 6 A fundamental movement pattern is a

High levels of torque placed on the upper body, and in particular the elbow, can result in greater injury risk as joint loading could exceed the yield points of dynamic and passive stabilizers of the elbow. 10 Kerut et al previously noted that signs of susceptibility to arm injury might begin

Soccer is characterized by an irregular, intermittent, and multidirectional activity profile, increasing the complexity of its mechanical demands. The mechanical demands of soccer and subsequent injury risk might be further influenced by the nature of the playing surface, 1 an extrinsic risk
