Looking for a new way to educate athletes about sports nutrition, many are turning to social media. In this roundtable, five experts provide their tips on what to share.

Treating the Athlete
Countering the assumption that female athletes tear their ACLs more because their knees move differently, this study says ACL injuries occur the same way in both females and males.

Injury Prevention
Research suggests that pitches thrown during bullpen and warm-up sessions aren’t being factored into high school pitch counts, which may explain why pitching injuries have not declined.

High School Focus
In 1993, Hawaii became the first state to require athletic trainers for all high school athletic departments. Since then, the state has become a national leader in collecting injury data.

A new study has found differences between the brains of athletes who play contact sports and those who play noncontact sports.

New Roles
Along with serving as a high school athletic trainer, Nicole Klarides-Ditria has a seat in the Connecticut House of Representatives.

Comeback Athlete
After breaking his tibia and fibula during the football season, this high school athlete wasn’t sure he’d see the baseball diamond in the spring. An extensive rehab ensured he was there for opening day.

Progressive Programs
When the North Kansas City (Mo.) School District introduced football at the middle school level, it also expanded athletic training coverage to middle school sports.

Tools & Modalities
Foam rolling is a great way to improve recovery. To get the most out of this technique, create a routine that targets the specific needs of your athletes.

New Ideas
