State Athletic Training Associations and District Organizations
The athletic training component operates as a federation of districts, which are independent in matters within their territories but at the same time are integrated nationally into the whole, which is NATA. Today, 10 district athletic trainers’ associations align with the several regional associations. These districts operate independent of NATA, choose their own officers and craft their own agendas and bylaws. They also elect district directors, which constitutes the NATA Board of Directors.
