Students: The Great AT Debate

October 9, 2023 by Lydia Hicks

Students and athletic training programs, you’re invited to attend the NATA Student Leadership Committee’s virtual fall engagement event, "The Great AT Debate," at 7 p.m. CDT Oct. 16.

During this event, athletic training students will be broken up into teams and debate on hot topics in athletic training. "The Great AT Debate" will be a great time to talk and collaborate with other students across the country.

“This will help athletic training students by providing them practice with argumentation, public speaking skills and another opportunity to practice their critical thinking skills,” SLC Outreach Committee Chair Claire Love said.

Registration is required.

Students participating in "The Great AT Debate" will be presented with a question or scenario. Each team will be assigned a viewpoint to argue, after which judges will decide the winner.


The SLC provides a voice for students within the athletic training community. It promotes learning about issues impacting the athletic training profession, getting involved in volunteer opportunities and taking a stand on matters impacting students in the present and future. 

The SLC helps athletic training students with resources to support their athletic training education and career development. AT students can connect with the SLC and fellow peers through various ways.
