The aim of this study was to evaluation of trauma incidence in the sportsmen studied in 2006-2008 through the identification of the risk factors and the introduction of prevention exercises and stretching methods in the training process, during both warm-up and post-effort rehabilitation, in order to prevent (forearm and elbow) injuries and increase performance in competitive sportsmen. Results. 2006 – 2008: significantly more elbow lesions in the 13-18 age group than in the 19-22 group (p = 0.011,  = 0.05); 2008 – 2009: significantly less elbow lesions in the 19-22 age group than in the 27-30 group (p = 0.014,  = 0.05). No significant differences (p = 0.587,  = 0.05) in elbow injuries distributed by age groups were recorded between the two periods (August 2006 – July 2008 and August 2008 - July 2009). As the differences in forearm traumas by age groups are minor (p=0.128, =0.05), no comparisons of lesions by age groups are necessary. The comparisons between the longevity in sports practicing groups in the first and second period were made with the χ2 test; the result was p = 0.48 with =0.05 significance threshold, which means that in the two periods there are no major differences in forearm and elbow injuries between the longevity groups.
Key words:

traumas, forearm, elbow, competitive sportsmen
