Association of Athletic Training Students

The Association of Athletic Training Students (AATS) is a social and service group made up of students in the Department of Kinesiology Athletic Training Education Program. The group is dedicated to providing students with learning, service, and social opportunities. AATS activities allow students opportunities to expand professional and social networks.

The group participates in various community ​outreach projects including the formation of a high school outreach program, educational booths for children at various locations on and off campus, and other philanthropic causes. Students participate in campus learning activities as well as annual trips to the state and regional athletic training conferences.

Our mission statement is to allow students in the Athletic Training Education Program to better the community using the unique knowledge and skill sets that athletic trainers possess. This organization educates the students of UW-Madison and surrounding communities about health related topics that affect the general population while promoting the Athletic Training Education Program.

The AATS and Athletic Training Students for Brain Safety (ATSBS) work together in order to assist in organizing and educating other clubs, students, parents and children about the effects of brain injury.
