Student Organization


Society of Athletic Training Students

The Society of Athletic Training Students (SATS) is a University recognized organization at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. SATS is committed to promoting and encouraging higher scholastic achievement and professional development in the study of athletic training. SATS provides information about nationally recognized organizations and associations such as the National Athletic Trainers' Association (NATA), the Wisconsin Athletic Trainers' Association (WATA), the Great Lakes Athletic Trainers' Association (GLATA), the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA), and the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM).

SATS encourages professional growth and development by providing financial support to students attending local or national conventions and symposiums. Funding to support SATS is made available from SATS sponsored fundraising events and the student organization office at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.

In addition to profession growth activities, SATS also sponsors several group activities for SATS members such as a camping/canoe trip, a day at Great America, and dinner at a local restaurant. Furthermore, SATS is committed to giving back to the community and has participated in charity events such as the annual Ch. 10 Telethon and the Walk To Cure Diabetes.

All students accepted into the ATEP are eligible to join SATS. Additional information about SATS can be obtained from SATS President, Shelly Adams at radams@uwm.edu.
