Times have changed, but our concerns and issues have not. As an organized group we have the ability to discuss our issues, express our concerns, and share ideas with other college athletic trainers. We strive to improve the quality of care for our student-athletes, enhance our relationships with college administrators, and work on the development of appropriate policies and procedures. In addition, we need to be concerned about our own well-being and quality of life.
CATS is a vehicle to promote these types of interests for the college athletic trainer. Our mission and objectives will remain the same as the new leaders of CATS aspire to guide our society under these guidelines.
The College Athletic Trainers' Society is founded to support its members who seek to provide high quality care for their student-athletes; to foster a close working relationship with organizations whose interests are to promote intercollegiate athletics; and to address the needs and concerns of full-time head and assistant athletic trainers at colleges and universities.
