Background: The aim of this research was to study the reliability of an Italian version of Pasulka’s questionnaire for the Classification of Injuries of Specialized Young Athletes: “Classificazione degli Infortuni per Giovani Atleti Specializzati - CIGAS”. Methods: Two researchers independently translated the English version of the questionnaire into Italian. The approved version was given twice, with an interval of one week between each administration. The interreader agreement was assessed by calculating the intraclass correlation coefficient, using the kappa (κ) statistic. Results: Twenty-nine athletes participated in the study, of which 18 completed the questionnaire twice. Five out of 13 items were perfectly or substantially agreed in the two administrations (κ>0.8): these items were those more specific or descriptive than the other ones, such as the definition of acute injury, description of the location of the injury and participation in contests. Conclusion: The online use of this questionnaire gave a satisfying response rate (70%) and indicated it to be a valid tool.
