Groin pain in athletes is not uncommon, and can be due to hip problems, sometimes associated with a click. Could also be muscle or tendon problems with abdominal and leg muses (alprostadil) where they attach to the pelvis. Collectively, this group of problems is sometimes referred to as a "sports hernia", even though the majority of the time there is no hernia. Hope this helps!
