|Abstract:||Purpose: To assess the perceived need for certified Ats and the perception of Ats' roles among school administrators and coaches at the high school level in Japan. Methods: 1,776 public high schools and 866 private high schools were selected to answer a web-based survey distributed via e-mail. Results: 4 out of 99 schools has a certified AT, and 22 coaches had at least 1 certified AT for the team(s) they coached. 65.6% of school administrators and 71.8% of coaches who did not have a certified AT indicated the need for certified ATs. There was a significant positive correlation between the perceived importance of having certified ATs and the understanding of ATs roles in all 3 groups (all participants: r=0.459, p=0.01, only school administrators: r=0.483, p=0.01, and only coaches: r=0.457, p=0.01). Conclusion: Increasing awareness of ATs' qualifications and the benefits of having a certified AT is an important step to increase the need for certified ATs and improve the employment opportunity in the future.|
