The ATLAS Project emerged from previous research conducted by KSI on behalf of the National Athletic Trainers’ Association (NATA) with the primary intention of developing a real-time database of athletic training services in secondary schools throughout the U.S.

Three studies served as the platform from which the ATLAS Project was launched in January of 2016.

  1. Athletic training services in public secondary schools: a benchmark study
  2. Athletic trainer services in US private secondary schools
  3. Athletic trainer services in public and private secondary schools
Since then, with the assistance of the NATA, the NATA Secondary School Athletic Trainers’ Committee, individual state leaders, various other athletic training committees, and grassroots efforts of ATs throughout the country, the ATLAS Project has become nationally recognized.
