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.
