As a new service of SMR we will try to provide announcements for new position statements and professional guidelines/recommendations as they are released. In April 2011, the NATA released a new position statement on the best practices for the prevention of overuse injuries in pediatric athletes (ages 6 to 18 years). NATA position statements are available to the public and we encourage our readers to read the latest addition to a nice list of position statements provided by the NATA (see below for a complete list).

Additional information about NATA Position Statements, including PowerPoint Presentations, can be found at
