Welcome to District One of the National Athletic Trainers' Association. District One is the home of over
2000 certified athletic trainers who are committed to quality health care throughout New England.


John G. “Jack” Baynes

Former District One Director and NATA Hall of Famer Jeff Stone has written a moving tribute to Jack, which captures his spirit and lists his many accomplishments, including his outstanding service to ATOM, District One, District Seven, and the NATA.

Donations in lieu of flowers:
Those wishing to remember Jack may do so with a donation in his memory made to the National Athletic Trainers’ Association (NATA) Foundation. Accepting donations through the Foundation allows the donations to be tax-deductible, and also allows them to be paid online.

IMPORTANT: When you fill in your information on the donation page, type in:

"Donation directed to the Frank George Scholarship Endowment." This will insure that the funds are used to support a student from District 1 or District 2 (EATA), as per Jack's wishes.

Also on the donation page, check the box that says: "Dedicate my donation in honor or in memory of someone" and complete the information. 

Cards can be directed to Jack's wife Connie:
Connie Baynes
355 Pratt Street
Mansfield, MA 02048

Jack's family will host a "Celebrate Jack Day" to honor his memory on Sunday, October 16, 2016 at the Chieftain Irish Pub, 23 Washington St. in Plainville, MA. It will start at 1:00 pm and last approximately 3 hours. It will be a gathering of the family's friends and Jack's athletic training comrades, former staff and students. (For travel planning, please be aware that the Patriots have a home game that day).


NATA District 1 Safe Sports School Grant Program – Apply Now!

The goal of the program is to increase the number of NATA 1st Team and 2nd Team Safe Sports School Awards presented to secondary schools in District One.  To date, approximately 800 schools have been recognized as Safe Sports Schools by the NATA.  Twenty-eight of these schools are within District One.  The District 1 Executive Council has approved funding to provide grants to 18 D1 schools. The grant will cover the $150 application fee for the Safe Sports School Award.  Each state in the District (ME, VT, NH, MA, RI, CT) will be guaranteed a minimum of three (3) grants.  Funding preference will be given to schools meeting all criteria for 1st team selection; however, schools meeting 2nd team criteria are encouraged to apply.
