Information For

District Young Professionals

Information for young professionals of District 2

The D2 Young Professionals' Committee (YPC) was created to address the needs of athletic trainers who are in the first 12 years after initial certification/licensure. It develops strategies to increase recruitment, retention, volunteer involvement and convention attendance among young athletic training professionals. The YPC provides programs, activities, and educational opportunities to address young professional needs as well as promotes professional socialization.
