Home of Northwest Athletic Trainers' Association or NWATA. NATA District 10
Athletic training is practiced by athletic trainers, health care professionals who collaborate with physicians to optimize activity and participation of patients and clients. Athletic training encompasses the prevention, diagnosis, and intervention of emergency, acute, and chronic medical conditions involving impairment, functional limitations, and disabilities.
NWATA.org was created by the Athletic Trainers in District 10 of the NATA to help disseminate information that is critical to the issues that affect the our membership and to help educate the public about a vital group of health professionals that is working in many different venues working with the active people of all ages.
Upcoming Committee Openings!

- Address ethics complaints.
- Ascertain that the Code of Ethics and the Membership Standards, Eligibility Requirements, and Membership Sanctions and Procedures are up-to-date and not in conflict with federal or state laws, rules and regulations, or NATA policy.
