KATS provides its membership with opportunities for continuing education and professional growth. KATS offers a yearly educational program that is open to certified athletic trainers, physicians, athletic training students, and other sports medicine professionals.

2020 Annual Meeting

The 2020 Annual Meeting has been cancelled due to the ongoing COVID-19 restrictions. An attempt will be made to develop a meeting in the later portions of 2020 but this will be dependent on the existence of restrictions at those times.
