About Us

Advancing the Profession of Athletic Training Through Education and Research

We are a professional membership association for athletic trainers and athletic training students in the states of Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio, and Wisconsin.

GLATA strives to enhance the quality of health care for the physically active, promote the athletic trainer and advance the profession of athletic training through education and research in the prevention, evaluation, management and rehabilitation of injuries.



The Great Lakes Athletic Trainers' Association (GLATA) represents District 4 and District 11of the National Athletic Trainers' Association (NATA). As part of the federation of the 11 NATA districts, we are integrated with the national association, but operate independently with our own board and agenda. However, membership dues for District 4 and District 11 are paid along with your NATA dues.

All membership information is provided to GLATA by the NATA. If you need to update your contact information, place of employment, or NPI number, please do so by following the "Update Your Membership Information" link at:
