Athlete Development Task Force



The ACRM Athlete Development & Sports Rehabilitation 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.
