Football (soccer) is very popular among children. Little is known about risk factors for football injuries in children. The aim was to analyze potential injury risk factors in 7‐ to 12‐year‐old players. We collected prospective data in Switzerland and the Czech Republic over two seasons. Coaches reported exposure of players (in hours), absence, and injury data via an Internet‐based registration system. We analyzed time‐to‐injury data with extended Cox models accounting for correlations on team… 
Females Sustain more Ankle Injuries than Males in Youth Football.
TLDR
The results showed that the acute injury incidence among youth football is moderately high, and females are at higher risk for ankle injuries, and injury prevention programs aimed at preventing ankle injuries should be considered in the future.
Prevalence of Football Injuries in Egyptian Children and Adolescents and its Correlation To Anthropometric Parameters
TLDR
Football players at (10-15) years old are highly suspected for injuries especially fractures, most of those injuries are contact injuries which occurs during the match.
A Machine Learning Approach to Assess Injury Risk in Elite Youth Football Players
TLDR
The machine learning algorithm was able to predict injury and to distinguish overuse from acute injuries with reasonably high accuracy based on preseason measures and could be applied in the development and improvement of injury risk management strategies to identify youth players with the highest injury risk.
Injury incidence and risk factors in youth soccer players: a systematic literature review. Part II: Intrinsic and extrinsic risk factors
TLDR
A systematic literature review on the injury risk factors in young soccer players found alteration in neuromuscular control such as limb asymmetry and dynamic knee valgus are important intrinsic risk factors.
Risk Factors for Non-Contact Lower-Limb Injury: A Retrospective Survey in Pediatric-Age Athletes
TLDR
Specializing in laterally dominant sports, left-leg preference, increase in age, training intensity, and training frequency indicated an increased risk of non-contact lower-limb injury in pediatric-age athletes.
Factors Associated With Knee Pain and Heel Pain in Youth Soccer Players Aged 8 to 12 Years
TLDR
In this study of youth soccer players, knee pain was associated with older age and more years of play, but heel pain was not significantly associated with any factor.
A Warm-Up Program to Reduce Injuries in Youth Field Hockey Players: A Quasi-Experiment.
TLDR
Exposure to the Warming-up Hockey program was not significantly associated with a lower injury rate and the burden of injuries on players' field hockey participation was lower in the intervention group.
Investigation of knee control as a lower extremity injury risk factor: A prospective study in youth football
This prospective study in youth football examined the relationship between frontal plane knee projection angle (FPKPA) during the single‐leg squat and sustaining an acute lower extremity injury or
Effects of the ‘11+ Kids’ injury prevention programme on severe injuries in children’s football: a secondary analysis of data from a multicentre cluster-randomised controlled trial
TLDR
‘11+ Kids’ has a large preventive effect on severe injuries by investing only 15 to 20 min per training session, and the injury types that were prevented the most were: other bone injuries 66%, fractures 49% and sprains and ligament injuries 37%.

Football Injuries in Children and Adolescent Players: Are There Clues for Prevention?
TLDR
Three main areas seem to be of particular relevance for future prevention research in young football players: (1) the substantial number of severe contact injuries during matches, (2) the high number of fractures in younger players, and (3) the influence of maturation status and growth spurts.
Soccer Injuries in Players Aged 7 to 12 Years
TLDR
The observed injury incidences were lower compared with studies in youth players, and children showed a relatively high proportion of fractures and bone stress and of injuries to the upper limbs.
Risk Factors for Injury in Indoor Compared with Outdoor Adolescent Soccer
TLDR
There were no significant differences in overall injury rates found by gender or age group for indoor compared with outdoor soccer, and future research should focus on injury prevention strategies to reduce lower extremity injury in indoor and outdoor adolescent soccer.
Risk of injury on artificial turf and natural grass in young female football players
TLDR
The overall risk of acute injuries was similar between artificial turf and natural grass among young female football players, and there was a trend towards more ankle sprains on artificial turf than on grass.
Sex-Related Injury Patterns among Selected High School Sports
TLDR
There was a higher number of surgeries, particularly knee and anterior cruciate ligament surgeries, for female basketball and soccer players than for boys or girls in other sports.
Comprehensive warm-up programme to prevent injuries in young female footballers: cluster randomised controlled trial
TLDR
Though the primary outcome of reduction in lower extremity injury did not reach significance, the risk of severe injuries, overuse injuries, and injuries overall was reduced, indicating that a structured warm-up programme can prevent injuries in young female football players.
Biomechanical Effects of an Injury Prevention Program in Preadolescent Female Soccer Athletes
TLDR
The F-MARC 11+ program may be effective in improving some risk factors for an ACL injury during a double-leg jump in preadolescent athletes, most notably by reducing peak knee valgus moment.
Sport injuries aligned to peak height velocity in talented pubertal soccer players.
TLDR
Adolescent growth spurt seems to result in increased vulnerability for traumatic injuries, and afterwards athletes seem to be susceptible to overuse injuries.
Sports and recreation related injury episodes in the US population, 1997–99
TLDR
As physical activity continues to be promoted as part of a healthy lifestyle, SR injuries are becoming an important public health concern for both children and adults and prevention efforts aimed at reducing SR injuries need to go beyond focusing on children and also consider physically active adults.
Exercise-Based Injury Prevention in Child and Adolescent Sport: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis
TLDR
The results provide good evidence and clearly demonstrate beneficial effects of exercise-based injury prevention programs in youth sports as they can result in statistically significant and practically relevant injury reduction.
