Members - Michigan Athletic Trainers Society (MATS)


The Michigan Athletic Trainers’ Society (MATS) is the professional membership association open to student and licensed Athletic Trainers with the objective to advance, encourage and improve the Athletic Training profession in the state of Michigan through education, legislation and other professional opportunities.  MATS members choose to support their profession, and by doing so receive a broad array of membership benefits. By joining forces as a group, MATS members can accomplish more for the Athletic Training profession than they can individually.  MATS is committed to ensuring that Athletic Trainers are viewed and recognized as highly trained, educated healthcare professionals who are experts in providing care in our scope of practice.
