Athletic Training Organizations & Activities
Through UIndy's Athletic Training Program, you can get involved in a student-led organization or join faculty and staff in professional membership organizations. Each can help you gain valuable experience and connect with other students who share your interests.
Athletic Training Student Association
The Athletic Training Student Association (ATSA) connects students to professionals in the athletic training and sports medicine industry through internships, campus events, social dinners and other personal growth opportunities. Students involved in ATSA exemplify leadership and service in athletic training on campus and in the community. Each year the club sponsors several signature events that provide professional development and networking opportunities for members. Past events have included community leaf raking, a benefit concert for Special Olympics Indiana and pop tab collections for the Ronald McDonald House.
National Athletic Trainer's Association
The National Athletic Trainers’ Association (NATA) extends professional membership to both non-certified students and certified athletic trainers. UIndy student members may participate in research projects and present their findings at conferences, as well as apply for scholarships through the NATA Research & Education Foundation. Students can also compete at the Quiz Bowl, get involved in leadership opportunities and network through NATA-sponsored community and volunteer programs.
Indiana Athletic Trainers Association
Through the Indiana Athletic Trainers Association, students can learn more about the athletic training profession and get involved in local educational and social events. UIndy participates in the annual IATA Quiz Bowl, which it has won five times since the Quiz Bowl's inception in 1996. The 2011 Quiz Bowl team also won the Quiz Bowl at the Great Lakes Athletic Trainers' Association (GLATA) and represented GLATA at the National Athletic Trainers' Association (NATA) Quiz Bowl. Additionally, students give oral and poster presentations at the IATA Fall Meeting and GLATA Winter Meeting.
