Prep to Play

Comparing the Impact of Supported and Unsupported Implementation Strategies in the Use of an Injury Prevention Program in Women's/ Girl's Community Football.

The aim of this study is to determine how we can best support coaches to implement an injury prevention (IP) program (Prep-to-play) in female community Australian Football. We will recruit at least 140 female community football teams from 15 different football leagues in Victoria, Australia. Teams will be competing in U16, U17, U18, U19 or open women's competitions. We will train and support coaches to implement the IP program and evaluate the effects of the IP program on injuries across two football seasons.
