District 4

District Representative:

Dale Grooms, ATC
 
My name is Dale Grooms and I am excited about the opportunity to serve and represent the secondary school athletic trainers of District four.  In the past, I have served as the Illinois Athletic Trainers Association Secondary School Committee Chairman for three years.

I have been very fortunate to have been able to work in the secondary school setting my entire career.  After graduating from college in 1994, I was able to work full time in the high school I attended, Maine West High School in Des Plaines, Illinois where I was the head, and only, athletic trainer for a school of 2,300 students.  In the fall of 2000, I changed to my current employer of New Trier High School in Winnetka, Illinois as the Head Athletic Trainer.  This is a school of over 4,000 students, which averages 3,000 athletic participations yearly.  The school has thirty-five athletic teams, and numerous clubs for student participation.  I look forward to collaborating with any and all athletic trainers at the national level.
