2020 NATA Convention
Wide World of Sports Sponsors



We are saddened to announce that due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and the health safety measures needing to be observed by all, we have cancelled our Wide World of Sport event that was scheduled to occur in Atlanta on June 19, 2020.

One of our greatest regrets is losing this particular opportunity to recognize the National Basketball Athletic Trainer’s Association (NBATA), the Professional Football Athletic Trainer’s Society (PFATS), the Professional Baseball Athletic Trainer’s Society(PBATS) and the Professional Hockey Athletic Trainer’s Society (PHATS).  Collectively these organizations have provided more than $1,000,000 in scholarship funding through the NATA Foundation, and are continuing to pave the way to assist athletic training students in acquiring an affordable, quality education.

Wide World of Sports was expected to be the NATA Research & Education Foundation’s largest fundraising event of the year.  We respectfully ask that those that have sponsored this event or purchased tickets, to consider allowing your charitable donation to remain with the NATA Foundation.  However, we realize that this may not be possible for all – and all refund requests will be honored.  We will be reaching out to our sponsors directly to discuss.  If you purchased a ticket to our event and would like to request a refund, you may do so with NATA’s Member Services.

Together we will come through this pandemic, and will remain AT Strong.

Our silent auction has become an annual tradition during the NATA Convention, raising more than $15,000 each year.  Since we are unable to have an in-person viewing option for bidders during the summer of 2020, we have decided to delay our auction until we can include the in-person viewing.  More details to come!
