Spotlight on the STOP Sports Injury Campaign

In 2007, concerned about the rise of youth overuse sports injuries, the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine (AOSSM) initiated the STOP (Sports Trauma and Overuse Prevention) Sports Injury campaign. By 2009, the SPTS joined its efforts along with the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS), American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), American Medical Society for Sports Medicine (AMSSM), National Athletic Trainers’ Association (NATA), National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA), Pediatric Orthopaedic Society of North America (POSNA), and SAFE Kids USA.

The mission of STOP Sports Injuries is simple: “Keeping Kids in the Game for Life.” The group’s primary goal is to improve public awareness about youth sports injuries, particularly overuse injuries, but continue to encourage an active lifestyle from a young age. The STOP Sports Injuries website, http://www.STOPsportsinjuries.org, includes free downloadable sports-specific injury prevention materials for athletes, parents, coaches and healthcare providers as well as links to educational videos and podcasts.  Blogs on various sports health topics from affiliated sports medicine experts are also available online.

Community youth sports safety events can be submitted to be posted on their website calendar. You are encouraged to Take the Pledge to promote sports safety in your community and have your organization sign up (for free!) to become an official, organizational affiliate.
