One of the goals of the CORE Foundation is to provide funding to develop improved methods and educational programs aimed at teaching coaches and trainers methods for preventing elbow, shoulder and knee injuries in young athletes.

The incidence of anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries in young
athletes has increased dramatically over the past 20 years, affecting an estimated 20% of all knee injuries in this age group. Some studies have shown that a third of preteen and teen soccer players will sustain an ACL tear, with girls being more than twice as likely to have an ACL injury than boys.

Developing specific exercise training programs can lower the risk of serious knee injuries, as well as reducing shoulder and elbow injuries in throwing athletes.
