Throwing Athlete Association

Our Mission

The Oklahoma Throwing Athlete Association (OTAA) was founded in 2021 as a complete resource for players, coaches, trainers, clinicians and parents for information regarding injuries in the throwing athlete.

Therapists, trainers, clinicians and surgeons throughout Oklahoma have combined to provide credible, scientific information and education to aid in the prevention and rehabilitation of injuries in the throwing athlete

Our vision is to be the leading authority on throwing injuries in Oklahoma and beyond. We hope to help throwing athletes of all ages and levels achieve their goals and enjoy their sport without compromising their health and well-being.
