President’s Message

It has been a very rewarding opportunity to represent all of the passionate and hard working athletic trainers in Washington state.  We have made great strides legislatively at the same time promoting the profession in ways that demonstrate our value as the most qualified medical providers to treat injured athletes of all ages and in all settings.

The more we all share in the responsibility to promote the profession with our actions and advocacy the better chance we have to reach those that need our services the most but don’t know it.
