Mentorship Program. The purpose of this program is to have clinicians in various settings to be a resource for those who are entering in to the profession or will be entering in to the profession (athletic training students). Attached is a list of mentors in various settings across the state. Please contact a mentor if you have any questions in regards to that specific job setting or any general questions you may have! 

5 for 5 Outreach Initiative. The goals of this outreach is to: interact with future and current young professionals, discuss leadership opportunities at national, district and state levels, encourage early and continued involvement with the NATA and its programs, and provide students and YPs with resources for success as a young certified athletic trainer. If interested in having a young professional come out, please contact Julie at
