BACKGROUND Much attention has been given to the relationship between various training factors and athletic injuries, but no study has examined the impact of sleep deprivation on injury rates in young athletes. [] Key Method Online surveys were completed by 112 adolescent athletes (70% completion rate), including 54 male and 58 female athletes with a mean age of 15 years (SD=1.5; range, 12 to 18 y).
CHRONIC LACK OF SLEEP IS ASSOCIATED WITH INCREASED SPORTS INJURY IN ADOLESCENTS: A SYSTEMATIC REVIEW AND META-ANALYSIS
TLDR
The results suggest that adolescents who either chronically sleep less than 8 hours per night, or have frequent night time awakenings, are more likely to experience sports or musculoskeletal injuries.
Sleep Disturbance and its Associated Risk Factors among Pakistani Athletes
TLDR
The study found a disturbing quality of sleep in a considerable number of athletes and interventions should be done to improve sleep quality so that the performance of the athletes can be improved.
Lack of Sleep and Sports Injuries in Adolescents: A Systematic Review and Meta-analysis
TLDR
Chronic lack of sleep in adolescents is associated with greater risk of sports and musculoskeletal injuries, and current evidence cannot yet definitively determine the effect of acute lack ofSleep on injury rates.
Too little sleep and an unhealthy diet could increase the risk of sustaining a new injury in adolescent elite athletes
TLDR
The findings suggest that nutrition intake and sleep volume are of importance in understanding injury incidence.
ASSOCIATION BETWEEN SLEEP QUALITY AND PAIN IN YOUNG AMATEUR ATHLETES
TLDR
Young athletes with lower levels of sleep quality show higher levels of pain at rest and during sports practice, and sleep quality and pain should be considered in the routine assessment of young athletes, by technical and health teams.
Comparison of sleep between youth elite amateur athletes and professional athletes
Recent studies suggest that professional athletes seem to experience significant sleeping problems. However, little is still known about the occurrence of sleeping challenges at different stages of
Impact of in-season injury on quality of life and sleep duration in female youth volleyball athletes: a prospective study of 2073 players
TLDR
In-season injuries are associated with significant decreases in total QOL as well as physical and psychosocial function and healthcare providers should consider the impacts of injuries on QOL and sleep in youth athletes in order to optimise management and improve overall health.
Prevalence of poor sleep quality in athletes before competition
TLDR
It is indicated that young, individual sports, and international athletes may be at higher risk of poor sleep quality before competitions.
Multiple factors explain injury risk in adolescent elite athletes: Applying a biopsychosocial perspective
TLDR
In conclusion, injury occurrence is confirmed as a result of multiple risk factors interacting in complex ways in adolescent elite athletes.
Decreased Sleep Is an Independent Predictor of In-Season Injury in Male Collegiate Basketball Players
TLDR
Increased sleep duration is independently associated with a reduced risk of in-season injury in male collegiate basketball players, even after adjustment for training load and subjective well-being.

Overuse Injuries in High School Athletes
TLDR
Reducing the number of sport seasons played by high school athletes could decrease their rate of overuse injuries, with the greatest gains potentially achieved by taking at least one season off from sports entirely each calendar year.
Injury patterns in selected high school sports: a review of the 1995-1997 seasons.
TLDR
An inherent risk of injury is associated with participation in high school sports based on the nature of the game and the activities of the players, and injury prevention programs should be in place for both practices and games.
Survey of Sport Participation and Sport Injury in Calgary and Area High Schools
TLDR
Rates of participation in sport and sport injury are high in adolescents and future research should focus on prevention strategies in sports with high participation and injury rates to maximize population health impact.
Survey of the injury rate for children in community sports.
TLDR
The direct observations of community sports through 2 seasons showed areas where immediate modifications could reduce injury risk and the classification of football as a collision sport, the high number of exposures per player, the FITS score, and the percentage of injuries considered serious, youth football should be a priority for injury studies.
Musculoskeletal pains in relation to different sport and exercise activities in youth.
TLDR
Physically active adolescents usually engage in several different sport and exercise activities, which make associations between single sports and musculoskeletal pains inconsequential in the general population of adolescents.
An epidemiologic investigation of injuries affecting young competitive female gymnasts
TLDR
Findings in volved injury rate, reinjury rate, time loss, injury type, hours of practice, and incidence of physician-seen in juries were disturbing and echo concerns registered in the professional literature.

TLDR
This review will assist in targeting the relevant groups and in designing future research on the epidemiology of pediatric sports injuries and well-designed descriptive and analytical studies are needed to identify the public health impact of pediatric sport injury.
Incidence and Player Risk Factors for Injury in Youth Football
TLDR
Game injury rates are higher than practice injury rates, and the incidence of injury tends to increase with grade level, while game injury rates were similar among fourth through fifth grade and sixth grade players and about twice as high among seventh and eighth grade players.
Injury history as a risk factor for incident injury in youth soccer
TLDR
It is suggested that, even in these youth soccer players, those with an injury history may be at higher risk of incident injury, compared with athletes with no previous injuries.

TLDR
Improvements in specific measures of basketball performance after sleep extension indicate that optimal sleep is likely beneficial in reaching peak athletic performance.
