Injuries are a significant barrier to an athlete and their team in achieving their performance-related goals. In many sports settings, injury is often viewed as an unpreventable and unfortunate consequence of participation. This is despite evidence showing that the injury risk associated with sports participation can be significantly reduced with the implementation of appropriate preventive strategies. The aims of this Special Issue are to (i) describe the extent of the injury problem in specific athlete populations (including tactical athletes); (ii) understand the mechanisms of common injuries in sport; and (iii) examine the efficacy and/or effectiveness of injury-prevention programs.
