ACRM Athlete Development and Sports Rehabilitation Networking Group header

 

The ACRM Athlete Development & Sports Rehabilitation (ADSR) Networking Group began forming in 2018 with two task forces, the Athlete Development Task Force and the Sports Rehabilitation Task Force.

The membership includes physicians, psychologists, athletic trainers, speech pathologists, physical therapists, occupational therapists, athletes, coaches, and program administrators.

NEW MEMBERS are WANTED to help shape the future of this important group. Contact the group co-chairs to learn more and to get involved.

 

MISSION

The mission of the ADSR Networking Group is to provide evidence-based information and promote best practices in the training and development of athletes of all levels as well as the rehabilitation of sport-related injuries.

 

VISION

The ACRM Athlete Development & Sports Rehabilitation (ADSR) Networking Group will lead the way in reviewing, understanding, and promoting best practices in athlete development and the rehabilitation of sport-related injuries. It is believed that optimal athlete training and development will reduce the risk of sport-related injuries. Recovery from injury will be facilitated by evidence-based practices that are informed by a biopsychosocial model.

 

GOALS

Initial goals of the Athlete Development and Sports Rehabilitation Networking Group include:

  • Clearly identify at least one project for each of the two task forces. Projects currently under discussion include:
    • Developing an evidence-based fact sheet for aspiring athletes and their parents/coaches
    • Surveying current providers regarding their concussion management/rehabilitation practices and needs
    • Conducting a study to determine if pre-season testing can identify athletes at risk of injury.
  • Submitting at least two speaker/symposia and at least two posters for the ACRM 2019 Annual Conference.
  • Have one full content track at the 2020 ACRM Conference.
  • Recruit and expand the ADSR Networking Group and ACRM membership.
