Abstract

In BriefThis study collected head impact data from 6 youth football teams to evaluate head impact exposure (HIE) among players during practice drills and to determine whether HIE varied among teams within drills. Quantifying HIE in practice drills is important for informing the modification of practice structure and drills to mitigate HIE and to improve the safety of football.
