Just this August Geoff Mabey had the opportunity to be the Athletic Therapist with the Men's Developmental National Basketball Team at the FISU Games in DaeguKorea. Geoff felt that it was an amazing exeprience, which was topped
off with a Bronze Medal finish by the team. He is looking forward to future travel with the team and perhaps a chance to go with the team to the 2005 FISU Games in Izmur Turkey. Congratulations Geoff!

Firstly, the APATA is pleased to announce that the DIANE WEBSTER MEMORIAL AWARD has been established and will be presented to an APATA Certification candidate for the 2001 Annual Conference. The APATA feels very fortunate to have an opportunity to recognize Diane’s career with CATA in this manner and we sincerely thank all those who have contributed to her fund..

Secondly, APATA would like to extend congratulations to Nadia Murphy CAT©, on her selection as therapist to the Canadian Hockey team competing at the FISU Games in Zakopane, Poland. We believe Nadia represented our association proudly, and that her experience at this event was a rewarding one. In fact, the Canadian team came back with a silver medal for their efforts.

The APATA has had quite a busy summer in 2000. Our region has played host to some major sporting events, such as the annual Gunn Balderson Soccer Tournament, and various National caliber Fastpitch events, including an exhibition match-up of our Canadian Senior Men’s Fastpitch team.
As the University season nears, many AT’s in our region are gearing up in preparation for training camps of various fall sports. Currently, the APATA members involved with University athletics are working to establish an AUAA guidebook outlining emergency protocols, hospital location, and detailed information on visiting teams. This guide will provide easy access of important information to each medical staff involved with AUAA sporting events.
A look ahead to the upcoming year reveals insurance billing as a major focus of our association, as we continue to promote community awareness of the benefits our profession brings.
In closing, APATA members would like to extend congratulations to Jim MacLeod of Acadia University on his selection to the Canadian Olympic Team Medical Staff for the Sydney Olympics.

The APATA has grown very quickly in recent months as the number of certified members increased to 17; up from 11 in 1999.
Unfortunately, our membership has had to face the challenge of losing one of our most respected members, Diane Webster CAT(C) whose life was lost in January, 2000. The guidance and experience she provided our candidates, along with her pursuit of excellence in our field, will be deeply missed by every member of our association. In memory of Diane’s devotion to educating our candidates, the APATA has created an award to be presented annually to a candidate from APATA. The purpose of this award is to assist the chosen candidate financially in attending the National Conference.
A look ahead to the upcoming year reveals insurance billing as a major focus of our association, as we continue to promote community awareness of the benefits our profession brings. We also hope to establish an AUAA guidebook outlining emergency protocols, hospital location, and detailed information on visiting teams. This guide will provide easy access of important information to each medical staff involved with AUAA sporting events.
