September 20, 2016

Training & Conditioning is now accepting nominations for the sixth annual Most Valuable Athletic Trainer Award, sponsored by School Health, to honor high school athletic trainers.

High school athletic trainers are the unsung heroes of interscholastic sports, and many work countless hours to help young people become the best they can be. That's why Training & Conditioning, along with School Health, have developed the Most Valuable Athletic Trainer Award.

  • Go beyond their job description to support student-athletes

  • Put in extra effort to make the athletic training program the best it can be

  • Serve the local or larger community through community and/or professional service

Note: The nominee must be committed to attending the 2018 NATA Convention in New Orleans. The winner will receive reimbursement for up to three nights of hotel expenses, as well as convention registration fee, courtesy of School Health. (Maximum reimbursement amount not to exceed $750. Recipient to provide receipts to School Health for reimbursement.)
