Nominate an outstanding AT for the Gatorade Secondary School Athletic Trainer Award before time runs out. Athletic trainers play an important role in the health and safety of athletes. However, that role too often goes unnoticed and many athletic trainers do not receive the recognition they deserve. 

The Gatorade Secondary School Athletic Trainer Award recognizes a certified athletic trainer from each NATA district who has made outstanding contributions in furthering their high school’s athletic training program or the overall profession of secondary school athletic training. Nominations will be accepted until September 15, 2018. Nominate your peers today!
