CATA HIT THE HILL 2021
We hope this finds you well. We are writing to you today to inform you of our National Athletic Training Month annual hit the hill day. As with many things in our lives this year, our hit the hill day will be virtual and we are planning a little something different!
As you may or may not know the CATA has helped draft and is supporting two main bills this year:
HB 5138 – An Act Concerning Exertional Heat Illness Education for Certain Coaches. For more information,
HB 6534 - An ACT CONCERNING EMERGENCY ACTION PLANS FOR INTERSCHOLASTIC AND INTRAMURAL ATHLETIC EVENTS. For more information, click here.
Since we will be virtual we thought it would be great to get a few folks on line for a virtual coffee break at 10:30 am during the last week of March. We were hoping to have students from our athletic training programs, legislators, and certified ATs join these virtual coffee hours based on their location in the state. A CATA Representative will also be on the call and we were hoping to have a discussion about the bills and about athletic training. By clicking on the google link at the end of this sentence, you will see an invitation and a place to RSVP., please make sure folks rsvp individually vs rsvp-ing a group. This way we can send out individual information with zoom info and know how many people we are expecting.
Thank you in advance for supporting the CATA and celebrating National Athletic Training Month with us!
