State Officers Participate in Washington State CTSO Training

Please welcome your new State Officers straight off of training at the Great Wolf Lodge in Grand Mound.

The new student board has impressed your BOD with their willingness to pursue tasks on their own for planning the upcoming WCTSMA year. Look for some new and exciting events being planned by your new student leadership board.


Summer Leadership Brings In New State Officers

WCTSMA will kick-off 2014-2015 with Summer Leadership at Kayak Point Park in Stanwood Wednesday August 13, 2014. Our newly trained state officers will lead the activities both educational and fun. As always there will be water activities and a BBQ to feed the troops. It would be great to see 10-20 schools participating in this great WCTSMA event. Look for the registration on the Summer Leadership page. You can contact me directly if you need the information right away as school is winding down.

WCTSMA Packs Yakima Convention Center for State Competition

Over 700 WCTSMA members invaded the Yakima Convention Center last weekend for the 20th annual Spring Symposium and State Competition. Total numbers were close to 900 with vendors, proctors and other support personnel.

Houston Kraft and Jim Wallis captivated the crowd with their "Rock Star" performances behind the microphone. WCTSMA State Officers went out with a "bang" as most entertained their last duties on the student board. New State Officers were selected while 2 returning State Officers will resume the duty of president in a co-chair position.

Issaquah High School defended their state title with a win over Wenatchee in a usual tight battle. Our California friends, Valencia, proved their intelligence with a strong 3rd place finish and a number 6 finish overall in grade point average.

Results will be available shortly on the website as we piece together student forum, poster presentations, JV quiz bowl, and speed taping finishes.


The State Competition is Here!

On Thursday April 24, 2014, vehicles full of sports medicine students, instructors, and support personnel will be arriving in Yakima, Washington for the 20th meeting of the Spring Symposium and State Competition.

Please read the final BOD letter addressing last minute updates for the event. We will continue to update you here on this site with last minute notices. Please make sure to check the WCTSMA State Competition section for important notices. The Final Schedule has been posted there for you to print off for your needs.

We look forward to seeing everybody in a few short days!
