Welcome, New Member!

Congratulations on taking the first step in becoming a part of the Sports Physical Therapy Section of the American Physical Therapy Association.  While the scope of the APTA covers the interests and education of all physical therapists, the SPTS supports your specific role as a sports physical therapist. The mission of the SPTS, as a component of the APTA, is “to promote the identity of the Sports Physical Therapist and to serve its members, athletes of all ages and abilities, the profession, and the community at large through excellence in Sports PT practice, research, education and professional development.”  Now that you are a member, we hope you take the time to learn about the ways in which the SPTS can support your practice and the benefits of membership.
