In honor of National Athletic Training Month, the Lehigh Valley Phantoms Hockey Team hosted an Athletic Trainer Appreciation Night at the PPL Center in Allentown, Pennsylvania on March 10th. Members of The Pennsylvania Athletic Trainers’ Society (PATS) were invited to attend the game to be recognized for the critical work they do on a daily basis. PATS had an informational booth set up at the entrance of the arena to provide educational materials about the profession of athletic training and National Athletic Training Month to the community in attendance. This was an also effort to help spread awareness, and also educate on the AT for All platform.
In addition to the night being a platform to spotlight Athletic Trainers, a portion of all funds raised from our ticket sales went towards a PATS scholarship fund. For more information on PATS scholarships, please visit http://www.gopats.org/scholarships/scholarships.htm.
