David McAllister, MAEd, ATC, LAT
My name isDavid McAllister and I am the new District III Representative to the NATA Secondary Schools Athletic Trainers’ Committee (SSATC). Having been recently added to the Committee, I look forward to representing and serving the athletic trainers working in the secondary school setting within my district.
I was employed as the Coordinator for Athletic Training services at Cary Sports Therapy in Cary, NC where I worked for three years. As part of my duties at the clinic, I served as the Head Athletic Trainer for the Raleigh Flyers; a local professional soccer team. I left Cary Sports Therapy to become the Head Athletic Trainer at Emory & Henry College in Emory, VA. While in Virginia I served as Chair of the Virginia Athletic Trainers’ Association Legislative Committee, which worked towards obtaining licensure for athletic trainers in the Commonwealth of Virginia.
In 1997 I returned home to North Carolina and for the last fifteen years have worked as the Athletic Trainer at Cary Academy in Cary, NC. During that time I have provided athletic health care to athletes participating on forty-seven teams in twelve sports at the middle school, junior varsity, and varsity levels. I currently serve as the Secondary School Representative to the NCATA Board of Directors and as the Editor of the quarterly NCATA newsletter. I serve as a member of the District III Scholarship Committee and in 2004, was selected by the NCATA as the Secondary Schools Athletic Trainer of the Year.
