Becoming a Board Member with Mike Cathy and Tony – 481

Do You Know any Board Members?

I know two now.  Becoming a board member from humble beginnings like most of us in the secondary setting is attainable.

Mike Carroll, Tony Fitzpatrick and Cathy Supak are really good friends who have held many leadership positions in Athletic Training.  Mike and Tony have basically climbed the ladder all the way to become board members for the NATA and the BOC.  If you want to become a decision maker then listen to the ones who have done it from the bottom.
We are broadcasting live from the 2018 NATA expo in New Orleans.
We used Facebook live, YouTube Live, Instagram Live and even periscope to stream as many of the NATA 2018 Expo Interviews as possible.

Athletic Trainer to Athletic Director – 477

How can I become an Athletic Director?

Many ATs have moved on to Administration.  Ross Cooper is an Athletic Director and Athletic Trainer for Detroit County Day Schools.

John Ciecko gets to the point to figure out how he got there and how you can follow Ross's path.

Ross Cooper; Athletic director; AD

Here are a few key points from Ross Cooper

  • Experienced ATs already perform many of the duties of an Athletic Director
  • You have to be willing to get out of your comfort zone
  • Exposure to multiple leaders and leadership styles is beneficial
  • Self-Reflection is crucial
  • Relationships with each person are important – never know who is watching
  • Be a good listener

Ross also mentioned he took the schedules and policies and made them all digital.  Using a system like Dragonfly MAX can help an Athletic Trainer reduce paper work, streamline the PPE process and improve communication with coaches, parents, and athletes

This Current Student Generation – 473

Why are “they” so LAZY

Dr. Knoblauch is an Athletic Training educator.  He is dealing with our replacements.  Consequently it is his job to stay relevant with this current student generation.
If you feel like this current generation is lazy then check out his presentation and Follow up interview.  Every generation feels like the ones after them are not as motivated.
We can complain about how “they” are not like “us” or we can move towards understanding and meet somewhere in between.
