Since 1986 GHATS has hosted a student athletic trainer workshop. This workshop is believed to be the largest of its kind in the United States. Each year approximately 900 high school student athletic trainers, professional athletic trainers, exhibitors, and speakers attend this one day event. Thank You to our Corporate Partners. Without their financial assistance this would not be the nation's largest FREE Student Athletic Trainer Workshop!
