This study explored the usage of Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) injury prevention programs by women's soccer coaches across the United States. The knowledge and attitudes towards these injury prevention programs was surveyed in order to understand why every coach has not implemented an ACL injury prevention program. ACL injuries plague female soccer athletes and every year billions of dollars are spent on their treatment and care. Researchers have developed programs that address the factors predisposing female athletes to knee injuries and these programs have been proven to reduce injury rates. It is unknown how prevalent these ACL injury prevention programs are being used.
In an attempt to find a demographic of coaches to target for education on ACL injury prevention, it was found through surveying coaches across the United States that the majority of coaches needed further education rather than a target demographic.
