  1. aAE Athlete-exposure, one athlete participating in one practice or one competition; total N may not add to those found in Table 1 due to missing data
  2. bAll RRs calculated with the lower of the two rates as referent group – the group with the significantly higher rate is bolded; CI denotes Confidence Interval. Bolded CIs indicate significance at alpha = 0.05
