Capitol Hill Day

Capitol Hill Day is an excellent opportunity for members of NATA to advocate for the athletic training profession on Capitol Hill in Washington.  This is NATA’s biggest advocacy event of the year and we always need your voice so you can help us educate our politicians about athletic training.

2015 Capitol Hill Day

Athletic trainers representing 24 states joined us in Washington, DC, on Feb. 23, 2015 for our biggest advocacy event of the year, Capitol Hill Day. Attendees conducted 192 meetings with legislators in support of the three pieces of legislation:

  • H.R. 829 / S. 436: SAFE PLAY (Supporting Athletes, Families and Educators to Protect the Lives of Athletic Youth) Act
  • H.R. 921: Sports Medicine Licensure Clarity Act
  • H.Res. 112 / S. Res. 83: Secondary School Student Athletes’ Bill of Rights
