NATA 2024: Visit NATA Connect

  • 7 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. June 25

Below is an overview of the different features you’ll find in NATA Connect.


NATAGear Store

Stop by the in-person NATAGear Store to shop for your AT-branded merchandise. Show off your athletic training pride with apparel, tumblers, pins, stickers and more. The on-site NATAGear Store will be open throughout Connect hours.


Level Up! Theatre

Opportunities exist throughout NATA 2024 to enrich your convention experience with the return of the popular Level Up! Theatre. During 30-minute breaks in convention programming, the Level Up! Theatre will feature 10-minute presentations by thought leaders in the profession on hot topics in athletic training. Find the full list of planned presentations on the Special Events page of the convention website.


Free Communications Posters

The Free Communications Program provides a forum for researchers and clinicians to disseminate research and clinical case studies. The abstracts selected by the Free Communications Committee are published in the Journal of Athletic Training and are presented via oral or poster presentation at NATA 2024. The posters will be available to view in NATA Connect and in the NATA 2024 On-Demand platform. On-Demand access is included in in-person registration for NATA 2024.


Career Center Live

Career Center Live connects ATs with hiring companies at the in-person convention. Members can search and apply for jobs online prior to convention. Jobs marked with a Career Center Live icon will be on-site and ready to hire. Attendees can also have their résumé reviewed at no cost and receive a complimentary headshot to use on their online profile.
