East Texas Athletic Trainers Association

Welcome to the East Texas Athletic Trainers Association (ETATA) website.  ETATA is an association comprised of professional athletic trainers from around the East Texas area.  It was created to promote the profession, educate the students, enhance learning and provide scholarship opportunities.


To create a professional community that educates, promotes, and advances the core values of athletic training throughout East Texas.

The Core Values of the East Texas Athletic Trainers Association are:

    • Through a regional organization, support TSATA, SWATA and NATA policies, guidelines, goals, objectives, and ideas.
    • Through a regional organization, provide low cost, high quality continuing educational units for the professional athletic trainer.
    • Through a regional organization, promote the profession of the (certified and licensed) athletic trainer.
  • Through a regional organization, enhance the student-trainer education and opportunities

We are disappointed to announce that with all that is going on at this time with COVID-19 and our two main sponsors being hospitals and medical groups with financial issues,  we will be canceling this year’s golf tournament.  We do plan to be back at it next year!

As for the scholarships we still want to give those out.  Please get your kids to get their application sent in.

Hope all of you are doing well and can’t wait to get back to some kind of normal.

SCHOLARSHIPS ARE POSTED ONLINE!  Don’t forget to get your students to complete these and get them turned in to Jason Dodd!  Information is located on the golf page of our website!

Congratulations to Dustin Swaim.  He is the 2019 winner of the Sandy Miller Award.
