As athletics on the collegiate level become more competitive, the need for professionally trained strength and conditioning coaches increases. Having qualified coaches enhances athletes' performance on the field, and have been shown to promote safety and prevent certain injuries. Organized injury databases are needed to support these athletic professionals in their quest to help prevent injuries. With the knowledge of sports medicine growing every day, it is important to have strength and conditioning coaches.
