Research

Our KIPP team is committed to scientific research to further our understanding of the mechanisms and prevention of sports-related knee injuries. All KIPP participants are invited to contribute to our ongoing research by completing three short questionnaires. The new information we gain from this research will be directly applied to future KIPP sessions.
