Annual Campaign 2022: Success Through Support


Forward Together: Success Through Support

NATA offers many resources to help ATs. While having advocacy tools, professional growth resources and connection opportunities are essential to advancing as an individual health care provider and collectively as a profession, support plays just as important of a role.

To highlight the importance of support and finding it within the athletic training community, the theme of NATA’s 2022 yearlong campaign is Forward Together: Success Through Support. 



"Success Through Support" Resources

NATA has and will continue to work alongside members to ensure they have access to needed resources. New resources will be developed out of our shared experience in order to fully support members. If you have a resource suggestion or a story to share with NATA, email us at


NATA Forward Motion

NATA Forward Motion is a quarterly discussion with President Kathy Dieringer, EdD, LAT, ATC, during which she will provide updates on strategic initiatives. The goal of NATA Forward Motion, an exclusive, members-only event, is to provide attendees a peek behind the curtain. Not only will members hear directly from Dieringer, they will have the opportunity to ask questions and provide feedback. 

ATs Care

The ATs Care program is designed to offer crisis management training opportunities for athletic trainers dealing with the aftermath of a critical incident. The mission of the ATs Care Committee is to aid ATs and AT students who have been through a critical incident by utilizing a peer-to peer-system to assist, monitor and encourage these individuals to seek initial support through state or regional ATs Care teams.


NATA's many volunteer committees serve the membership by ensuring ATs have the resources and representation needed in to success in their job setting, further their interests and fulfill specific needs within the profession.
