In an attempt to agree on a standard terminology, the Doha agreement meeting on terminology and definitions in groin pain in athletes was held in 2014. During the agreement meeting, a single set of terms and definitions were agreed on (Weir et al., 2015). Only one study have prospectively assessed and classified athletes according to the Doha classification system (Mosler et al., 2018). The Norwegian Sports Medicine Clinic (Idrettens Helsesenter) is a specialised clinic for athletes from nearly all sports, all age groups and different levels of sport presenting a great variety of sports injuries. Each year, about 250 athletes having groin pain are referred to the clinic. All athletes with groin pain go through a standardized medical assessment plan. The aim of this project is to assess and classify athletes referred to Idrettens Helsesenter having AGP, according to the Doha agreement and classification system. A secondary aim is to examine the athlete's self-reported symptoms, activity limitations, participation restrictions and QOL (HAGOS), pain, return-to-sport and performance after 10, 26 and 52 weeks.
