In recent years, the attention on injuries, especially brain injuries, in organised sport has gained a large following. Increasing research showing the damage that can be caused through physical contact in sports have led to the formation of the Sport Collision Injury Collective. As a group of dedicated academic researchers and health care professionals, we aim to understand the varying perspectives towards contact sports and its functions and limitations. We come from a range of disciplines, including; Medicine, Public Health, Psychology, Law, Sociology, Sport, Health and Education.
