Clinical Trial Summary

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 2,600 female community footballers aged > 14years from 15 different football leagues. 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.


Clinical Trial Description

Primary Aim: To compare the impact of supported and unsupported implementation strategies on the use of an IP program (Prep-to-Play) in female community Australian Football. Secondary aims are to: 1. Evaluate the effects of supported implementation of Prep-to-Play on injury risk reduction. 2. Identify barriers and enablers to sustainability of the Prep-to-Play implementation model, and develop clear recommendations for a future, sustainable national roll out of Prep-to-Play. 3. Evaluate the cost-effectiveness of Prep-to-Play. Primary hypothesis The primary hypothesis is that supported implementation will result in increased use of Prep-to-Play in female community Australian Football compared to unsupported implementation. Secondary hypotheses The secondary hypotheses are that the supported implementation of Prep-to-Play will: - result in a reduction of anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries in females participating in community Australian Football; - result in a reduction of other musculoskeletal injuries and concussion among females participating in community Australian Football; - be more cost-effective than the unsupported implementation. ;
