Want to network with fellow YP athletic trainers? Join the conversation.

The NATA Young Professionals' Committee (YPC) was created to address issues of athletic trainers who are in their first 12 years of initial certification. It develops strategies to increase recruitment, retention, volunteer involvement and convention attendance among young athletic training professionals. The YPC provides programs, activities and educational opportunities to address young professional needs. The committee also promotes professional socialization of young professionals.

YPC members are selected to represent each NATA district and are appointed to the committee by the district director and the committee chair. Contact the committee

Connect at Convention

The YPC hosts the signature event in the Cramer Young Professionals' Lounge each year at the NATA convention. The YP social, titled "Learning from Legends, Celebrating the Future",  gives YPs the opportunity to meet members of the NATA Board of Directors, Hall of Famers, national leaders and other young professionals. Details about YPC events at NATA 2018 in New Orleans will be posted when available.
