The-main-purpose-of-the-study-was-to-extend-the-research-on-injuries-sustained-by female soccer players in relation to injury occurrence, severity, and anatomical site, mechanism of injury, nature and preventative measures currently being employed. It was hypothesised that there would be a significant difference when comparing matches and training in relation to injury occurrence, anatomical site, nature, severity and mechanism of an injury. Also it was hypothesised that there would be a significant difference between the severity of an injury in relation to anatomical site, playing surface and treatment. Also it was hypothesised that there would be a significant difference between the mechanism of injury and anatomical site and the mechanism compared with playing position. Information was gathered from female players at club and international standard through distribution of a questionnaire. On completion of the data collection the information was entered into snap professional, version 7 campus edition software package and analysis was carried out providing tables and graphs of the findings from the study. A chi squared non-parametric test was implemented on the data and the relationship was determined providing a level of significance. During a match there was a significantly higher proportion of injuries reported (p<0.05). When comparing training and matches significant differences were found in relation to anatomical site, nature and severity of injuries at the of 5% level or less. There were significant differences between severity and playing surface (1% level), treatment (5%level) and anatomical site (5%level) Also between the mechanism of injury and anatomical site (1%level). No significant differences were found between playing position and injury occurrence and nature of an injury in relation to training and matches.
