Welcome Athletic Trainers!

Far West Athletic Trainers’ Association | NATA District 8

The Far West Athletic Trainers’ Association (FWATA), also known as District 8 of the National Athletic Trainers’ Association (NATA) is comprised of state athletic trainers associations from California, Hawaii and Nevada. All NATA members that reside within the District 8 states are automatically members of the FWATA.

The purpose of the FWATA website is to provide the membership with information and resources regarding the latest state, regional and national news regarding health care and the Athletic Trainer. It is our goal to provide up to date information for those members living in California, Nevada and Hawaii concerning athletic training clinical practice, links to state and national legislative requirements and educational opportunities for Athletic Trainers living and working in District 8. FWATA represents the state associations within the district at the national level and each year FWATA holds their own Annual District Meeting & Clinical Symposium. FWATA also provides athletic training student scholarships and supports research grants in the field of athletic training.
