The inaugural Annual Meeting and Scientific Conference (AMSC) will feature over two days of educational content and opportunities for attendees to reconnect with each other and the sports physical therapy profession.  The conference will be held both in-person in Indianapolis and an online-only virtual experience.  Join us in Indy or online for an opportunity to learn, lead, and reconnect!

NCAA Hall of Champions

In-person conference attendees will have ample opportunities to network with other attendees.  Join us on September 23 for an exclusive sports physical therapist reception at the NCAA Headquarters Hall of Champions.  Our annual TeamMates networking event will be held on Friday, September 24, just prior to Suds and Science - an opportunity to connect while learning from members as they share their research.  Click on the agenda below to learn more about the conference.

Following discussions with AASPT leadership and guidance from both the CDC and local health department officials, and with anticipated continued progress towards mitigating the effects of COVID-19, AASPT intends to move forward with an in-person meeting.  AASPT will follow all recommended local, state, and federal protocols in place at the time of the AMSC to maintain maximum social responsibility.  All protocols in place will be communicated to attendees in advance of the event and strictly enforced throughout the meeting.
