Committees & Officers of Kansas Athletic Trainers’ Society

The more our members get involved the stronger our state organization and athletic training profession becomes. The NATA is only as strong as its districts, the districts are only as strong as its individual states, and the profession of athletic training in Kansas is only as strong as its ACTIVE members involved with KATS.

BE ACTIVE within your profession!
