Testicular pain while exercising

Hi doc

I’  m a coach and I give one-on-one lessons to rugby players, soccer players, tennis players and wrestlers between the ages of 8 and 25 to improve their explosive power. I monitor my players’  progress by keeping track of their muscle growth, weight, blood pressure, their ability to do certain exercises, jumps and stretches. I have noticed that a large percentage of my players complain of testicular pain related to certain jumps and bounding. I would like to know whether it would be legal for me to give my players testicular/genital examinations when we do our weekly/monthly progress checks and how do I do it? What advice can I give to my players about genital health? And how could my players avoid these pains?
