The Certified Athletic Trainers of China (CATC) is a regionally-based association of Certified Athletic Trainers/Therapists and similar healthcare professionals. CATC was founded to organize, liaise, and focus the growing field of athletic training in China. The collective, grassroots effort of a handful of ATCs in 2015 has led to rapid development of the profession in China and globally. CATC is an inclusive society, welcoming local or foreign healthcare providers, students, individuals and organizations with a vested interest in our mission. The bulk of our membership are expatriate ATCs employed in the international school setting, which remains our priority. The passionate members of CATC are dedicated to improving the regional sports medicine standard of care and professional/educational opportunities through extensive collaboration.
