Abstract

The aim of the current study was to examine the relationship between number of headers and cognitive processing in collegiate female soccer players over the course of a typical soccer season. This study expands upon the current literature by counting headers not only during games, but also during practices. Additionally, cognitive function was assessed at 4 points throughout the season to allow examination of change over time. The primary hypothesis was that performance on a cognitive test would be negatively related to the number of headers during the season.
