    About This Project

    Despite consistent investigation, the risk factors responsible for non-contact Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) injury continue to remain ambiguous and prevention programs fail to be effective. The goal of this study is to build a comprehensive profile of the ACL-injured athlete in order to create a better prevention protocol. Once we find out which factors best predict injury, they will be used to create a prediction equation to best identify risk for ACL injury in female soccer athletes.
