PHATS/SPHEM 2021 Virtual Conference

PHATS/SPHEM is pleased to announce that Registration is open for the PHATS/SPHEM 2021 Virtual Conference & Exhibition, July 14 & 15th, 2021.  

Coming together each Summer is such an integral part of our Societies’ success and with that in mind, our 2021 Conference hopes to do just that! We are excited to take a few days to learn, interact and reconnect with each other and our valued vendors.  While we will miss our in-person meetings, after what has been a long and trying year for so many, we are happy that at the very least, we will come together virtually.


In 1973, both the NHL and NHLPA had officially recognized the Professional Hockey Athletic Trainers Association. Over the next 20 years, the organization continued to expand its ranks to include both athletic trainers and equipment managers from the AHL, ECHL, SPHL, NCAA, OHL, WHL, QMJHL and USHL.

In 1996, members voted to divide the organization into two equal societies which would continue to strive to meet common goals, as well as focusing on the specific needs of athletic trainers and equipment managers.

Today, the Professional Hockey Athletic Trainers Society (PHATS) and the Society of Professional Hockey Equipment Managers (SPHEM) boast over 600 members, who represent more than 100 Professional, NCAA and Canadian Junior League teams from across North America and Europe.
