Breaking News from SWATA

David Gish

It is with great sadness that I announce the passing of our NATA District VI President, David Gish. David “fought like hell” just like he promised, but lost his battle with cancer overnight. David served his athletes, his students, and his members with professionalism, integrity, and character, and he will be severely missed. Though David’s tenure as President was very short, his impact and legacy to his colleagues, students, Board, and members was tremendous. He gave us the greatest gift of all, his time. A service to honor David’s life will be announced at a later date. Please keep his wife Karen, and his children Madison and Hayden in your thoughts and prayers.

District VI Director


Hall of Honor

The Hall of Honor was a great success. Thanks to all of those Athletic trainers who have gone before us and all of the ones who worked so hard to put this together.

Pictures will be posted to our Flikr site and streamed here soon.
