Can you get a ACL injury from any sports?

In brief: Yes

Most acl tears occur through noncontact activity.
Any sport where you are on your feet and use you knees may predispose you to an acl tear.

In brief: Just about.

Any activity where your knee might twist beyond its limits can result in an ACL tear.
We have 3 patients in our practice who tore their ACL's twisting to get out of an airplane seat.

In brief: Any cutting/pivoting

Any sport that requires one to cut and pivot or involves contact/collision can theoretically lead to an acl or any other knee ligament injury.
