The long-term consequences of overuse injuries can impact both academic and athletic performance of collegiate athletes. Over the course of my research I have identified and summarized the determinants leading to high rates of overuse injury. To prevent chronic health consequences resulting from untreated injuries, I will propose a series of strategies to implement with NCAA Collegiate Athletes. Using evidence based data I will discuss the use of acquiring proper technology to track athlete training, combined with implementing correct periodization models. Using these data collection methods will allow coaches to identify and adjust training before a decline in performance occurs.
