Work-life balance
Chris Mathewson, ATC, MSS, CSCS
NATA Board of Directors
District 7

I think people who get into athletic training are givers by nature, as are most people in medical professions. In addition to giving our time, often exceeding that in any contractual obligations, we also give our hearts and souls to ensure the athletic and personal successes of the students in our charge. Because of that commitment, especially in a secondary school setting, it can be difficult to achieve a work/life balance. Read more about achieving a work life balance as a secondary school athletic trainer.

Gatorade SSAT Award: Call for nominations
Gatorade has been a partner of the NATA for more than 30 years, and throughout this partnership, it has worked closely with athletic trainers in the secondary school setting to help ensure athletes receive the highest quality care. That's because Gatorade understands the impact SSATs have on the health and safety of high school athletes.

As part of their commitment, Gatorade, in partnership with the SSATC, is launching year two of the Gatorade Secondary School Athletic Training Award. This award recognizes certified athletic trainers from each NATA district who have made outstanding contributions in furthering their high school's athletic care program or the overall profession of secondary school athletic training.

Get details on the 2015-2016 Gatorade Secondary School Athletic Trainer award, and please take the time to nominate a worthy SSAT from your community.
