The Saskatchewan Athletic Therapists Association (SATA) is a voluntary association whose purpose is to protect the public through setting education, certification and discipline standards for its members in the province of Saskatchewan. The SATA in part derives its mandate from the Canadian Athletic Therapists Association (CATA) the national governing body of Athletic Therapists in Canada.
