Cramer has a rich history in athletic training and with NATA. For decades, we have been a proud to partner with the organization and support the field and the amazing clinicians that work within it. Here’s a small sneak peak of how we’ve worked to enhance athletic training throughout the years:

1932 – The U.S. Olympic track and field team selects Cramer co-founders Frank and Chuck Cramer as its first athletic trainers.

1950 – Frank and Chuck Cramer fund and help organize the first meeting that would eventually be known as the National Athletic Trainers Association (NATA)
