Honorary Member Guidelines


The SWATA “Honorary Membership” was created so the Association could recognize and thank the many people outside the athletic training profession who have contributed to the SWATA and the advancement of the athletic training profession.


  1. Contributed significantly to the health, care, and welfare of athletes at a certain school or institution within District VI for a minimum ten years.
  2. Contributed at least ten years to the promotion of the athletic training profession. (injury research, personal appearances, speaking engagements, legislative efforts, etc.)
  3. “Honorary Membership” categories include:
  4. Athletic Trainers in other Districts in the NATA for contributions to the profession.
  5. Physicians and other allied health professionals.
  6. NATA office personnel.
  7. Coaches, AD’s, Administrators, or athletes who promote SWATA/athletic training.
  8. Induction as “Honorary Member” of NATA will constitute automatic induction as Honorary Member of the SWATA if the inductee resides within District VI.

The SWATA recognizes those who have supported the profession of athletic training by distinguishing them as Honorary Members to the Southwest Athletic Trainers Association.  These individuals have given countless hours and resources to assist athletic trainers within the local community in providing the best possible medical care for the physically active population.
