|- Healt Condition(s) or Problem(s) studied||Lower extremity, Injury, Jump-landing technique|
|- Inclusion criteria||Athletes in national division and, 1st and 2nd regional basketball teams in Flanders, Belgium.|

|- planned startdate ||1-aug-2010|
|- planned closingdate||30-mrt-2011|
|- Target number of participants||240|
|- Interventions||Control group:|
Normal training routine.
Normal training routine and exercise programme based on systematic literature reviews. The programme lasts three months and involves exercises concerning jump-landing technique.
The intervention lasts three months, each month another accent:
1st month: Technique;
2nd month: Fundamentals;
3rd month: Performance.
All exercises in the current program are adjusted so that a more progressive development in the exercise is presented.
|- Primary outcome||Jump-landing technique. The jump-landings of all athletes will be recorded with a camera and will be analysed on technique.|
|- Secondary outcome||Injuries.|
|- Timepoints||During the study period there are two fixed measurement, at baseline (T0) and after 3 months (T1). At T0 a questionnaire is completed by the athletes, and at both occasions (T0-T1) the athletesí jump landing technique is assessed. Additionally, exposure hours and lower extremity injuries are continuous registered through questionnaires during the entire 2010-2011 basketball season (6 months).|

|- Brief summary||With the relatively high rate of injuries to the lower extremity due to jump-landing movement patterns and the accompanied high costs, there is need for determining potential preventive programs. A program on the intervention of jump-landing technique is possibly an important preventative measure since it appeared to reduce the incidence of lower extremity injuries. In real life situations, amateur sports lack the infrastructure and funds to have a sports physician or therapist permanently supervising such a program. Therefore the current prevention program is designed so that it could be implemented by coaches alone. |
The study is started in Belgium.
