What is Athletic Therapy?

Canadian Athletic Therapists Association (CATA)

An Athletic Therapist is a certified member of the Canadian Athletic Therapists Association (CATA). The letters CAT(C) after the therapist's name designates a Certified Athletic Therapist (Canada). The CATA was originally founded in 1965 under the name Canadian Athletic Trainers Association. In 1975, the Association became the Canadian Athletic Therapists Association (CATA) to reflect the more appropriate image of the professional therapist. That year marked the first year that the certification process was first implemented.

The CATA has always been at the forefront of the Canadian sport medicine community. Over the years the CATA has grown in credibility and professional status to become widely recognized throughout the general health care community.
