Leaders in Sport Injury Prevention Research

The University of Calgary Sport Injury Prevention Research Centre (SIPRC) is committed to achieving a 25% reduction in youth sport and recreational injuries by 2025. We are one of 11 International Research Centres for the Prevention of Injury and Protection of Athlete Health supported by the International Olympic Committee. We will achieve our injury reduction goal by conducting world leading research on injury prevention in youth sport and recreation, providing a vibrant and supportive learning environment for faculty, trainees, students and staff, and building collaborative partnerships with community partners, decision-makers, youth and parents

We focus on reducing the risk of injury in sport and recreation, with particular emphasis on injury prevention for children and adolescents. In collaboration with our community partners, we aim to develop and implement injury prevention and management strategies, with the goal of promoting healthy, lifelong physical activity participation.
