News From One Of Our Corporate Partners - Michigan Athletic Trainers Society (MATS)

Michigan Athletic Trainers Society (MATS) is a professional association representing over 800+ athletic trainers across the state.  We are proud to be a resource to the membership of MIAAA.  With over 400 athletic trainers that can be found working in the 750 MHSAA member schools, there are several upcoming events and resources we wanted to share with you at this time.


  • Athletic trainer contact information - Please take a minute and add the contact information of your licensed athletic trainer (if you have one) to your school's MHSAA landing page.  This is a great help resource for all athletic trainers to help with planning and communication needs.  

  • Members of our Secondary School Committee will be present at the upcoming MIAAA Mid-Winter Conference in Traverse City.  Please stop by the MATS booth across from the registration area.

  • March is National Athletic Training Month - The slogan this year is "ATs Impact Health Care Through Action".  Please stop by the MATS booth when in TC for some great ways to recognize the work your AT does at your school. Or check out the following link for some other ideas you might be interested in using.
