Background: Little is known about the burden of overuse injuries and illnesses in junior elite ice hockey.
Purpose: The aim of this study was to report the prevalence and burden of all health problems in junior elite ice hockey in Norway during one school year.
Methods: This was a prospective cohort study monitoring all health problems among 206 junior ice hockey players at WANG and NTG (sport-specific high schools) during a school year. Players reported all injuries and illnesses every week during the school year 2818/2019 using Oslo Sports Trauma Research Center Questionnaire on Health Problems (OSTRC-H2).
Implications: This is the first study to present prospective self-reported injury and illness data on junior elite ice hockey players. These data can hopefully provide guidance in the development of prevention programs for both acute and overuse illnesses in ice hockey.
