With the help of the Hockeyroos UWA researchers have developed a hip and trunk training program that could reduce the high rates of anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries in all levels of sport.

Females are about five times more likely to suffer an ACL injury and more than half of these come from non-contact sidestepping movements.

The Hockeyroos had four non-contact ACL injuries in the year prior to the training program.
