Scientific Research

Studying the physiological and musculoskeletal aspects of athletic performance will be an important part of our mission. Dr. Michael Bergeron, Director of the National Institute for Athletic Health & Performance and the Center for Youth Sports & Health, will be studying the effects of proper hydration on athletes to help fine-tune their hydration needs and provide customized strategies that will reduce injury risk, optimize performance, and minimize rehabilitation and return-to-play time.

Dr. Thayne Munce will be studying G-forces and concussion in youth athletes, the first study of its kind. And that's just the beginning.
