The MATA founded and developed the Athletic First Aider Program (AFAP) which is a progressive, educational program that provides individuals with a hands-on, practical program to increase their knowledge of the management of activity-related injuries. The AFAP is for individuals actively involved in sport, fitness, health, or recreational activities. Courses included within the AFAP are the Canadian Sport Safety Program, taping symposiums and basic emergency first aid.
The AFAP program is offered in 3 levels, as well a specific course is offered for football and soccer. To learn more about these courses or to set one up in your area you can contact the mata office.
