Abstract: 
Chronic athletic groin pain (AGP) is commonly experienced in a range of sports including Australian rules and Gaelic football. These sports share the dynamic movements of acceleration, deceleration and sudden direction change (cutting). Substantial dynamic forces are generated while cutting and it is theorised that sub-optimal control in such dynamic activates may be associated with excessive tissue loads and biomechanical overload. At present, however, the biomechanical factors associated with AGP are not well understood.
