Celebrate National Athletic Training Month!

February 27, 2014 by JordanG

We are so excited to kick off our brand new NATA Now blog with a post about the best month of the year! This is your chance to shout your love for athletic training from the rooftops, and we wanted to make sure you take full advantage of the resources we have available. Let's make March 2014 the best National Athletic Training Month yet!

This year we have a very special treat for you – a free advocacy poster in your March NATA News! Once you pull the poster out of your issue, make sure to show us where you're displaying it for a chance to win great prizes.

Spread the word on social media
One of the easiest ways to support the cause this March is to switch out your personal Facebook cover image. We've provided a downloadable cover image that will help spread the word about National Athletic Training Month. We've already made the switch on our page.

We’ve also made the switch on our Twitter page, too.

Don't forget to use our special hashtag, #NATM2014. Let’s tell the world about this profession and get that hashtag on the “trending” list!
Show us your efforts
We want to see how you are celebrating! Share your photos and videos with us via social media (with the hashtag #NATM2014) for a chance to win cash prizes. You can find the full details about the social media contest here. Your photos could be featured in the May 2014 NATA News or on this blog, where we'll be picking some of our favorite submissions to feature each week.
More valuable resources
The National Athletic Training Month page on our website also provides sample press releases, calendar listings, proclamations, public service announcements and media alerts.
We hope you’ll join us in our efforts to advocate for the profession during National Athletic Training Month in March. Every little bit counts!
