Injuries
THE NUMBERS
Breakdown of the 2021 National High School
Sports-Related Injury Surveillance Study
By Wesley Sykes
Managing Editor
H
igh school sports play an important role
in the adoption and maintenance of a
physically active lifestyle among millions of
US adolescents. Too often injury prevention in this
population is overlooked as sports-related injuries
are thought to be unavoidable. In reality, sportsrelated
injuries are largely preventable through
the application of preventive interventions based
on evidence-based science.
The morbidity, mortality, and disability caused
by high school sports-related injuries can be
reduced through the development of effective
prevention strategies and through programmatic
decisions based on injury
prevention. However,
such efforts rely upon
accurate national
estimates of injury
incidence, injury rate
calculations, and risk and
protective factor data.
Previously, no injury
surveillance system
capable of providing
researchers with the
needed quality of injury
and exposure data for
high school sportsrelated
injuries existed.

Since the 200506

National High School
Sports-Related Injury
Shoulder Strain/Sprain
Trunk Strain/Sprain
Surveillance Study has monitored injuries among
US high school athletes participating in boys
football, boys and girls soccer, girls volleyball,
boys and girls' basketball, boys wrestling, boys
baseball, and girls softball. This surveillance
has been conducted using the time- and costefficient
RIOTM (Reporting Information Online)
surveillance system.
Below is a brief analysis of the results from the
2020-21 injury surveillance study.
Ankle strains and sprains accounted for the
number of most common injuries among high
school student-athletes with 221,066 reported
