About the NWATA

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.

NWATA Committees

There are two different types of committees in the District.  Some are district based and others are liaisons to larger committees within the NATA. 


Committee openings will be posted for a minimum of 30 days.  Interested members should send a letter of interest and resume to the current District Director.

The District 10 BOD will make decisions on district based committees and the following procedure is used for committees that report to the NATA.

1) the committee chair notifies NATA and the district director of the vacancy;

2) the district communicates the opening to its members while the departing committee member recruits for the replacement;

3) interested candidates send a CV and letter of intent to the director;

4) the director reviews the application and sends the top 1-2 candidates to the committee chair;

5) the chair approves one or both candidates;

6) the director makes the final decision.
