Risk factors that may increase injury risk in male youth soccer players have been outlined previously, including: growth and maturation, movement skill, fatigue and previous injury. Practitioners should utilize suitable assessment and monitoring tools that can be used to systematically screen athletes for these risk factors to assist in the early identification of high risk athletes. The key factors for effective implementation have been reviewed in this manuscript.
