Faculty mentor: Keith Lohse

The purpose of the study was to assess how previous sport engagement and performance are related to injury in a sample of sub-elite youth alpine skiers. We examined data from questionnaires assessing practice/injury history and sport-specific milestones, and performance in speed and technical disciplines that were given to U.S. ski academy athletes.
