This live activity is designed to focus on areas of concern or controversy in the management of hockey athletes in a team sport setting through didactic presentations and case based scenarios. Key issues, along with up-to-date and practical solutions, will be addressed.

Upon completion of the course learners should be able to:

• Analyze epidemiological trends in hockey injuries for professional, female and youth hockey players.
