Through our Schools & Clubs Programme, we are bringing a science-led, data-driven approach to the school playing fields - the front line of our mission to reduce the incidence and impact of injury in sport. Our school network, and the tracks, fields, pitches, pools and courts where young people develop their sporting skills and sustain their first injuries, sits at the very heart of our strategy. This is where real insight into the cause and effect of injury can be uncovered and transformative change implemented.
At the core of our Schools & Clubs Programme is an innovative and accessible digital platform that aims to transform the relationship young people have with injury. The Podium digital platform will simultaneously gather longitudinal sports injury data, disseminate knowledge, which may be the result of existing best practice or it may be new learnings and insight uncovered by the Podium Institute of Youth Sports Medicine & Technology. The Podium digital platform will also be a means to communicate change initiatives, as well as providing schools with tools and dashboards to oversee and manage their sports related injuries.
