The Awards Committee oversees the process of collecting nominations and selecting recipients for a variety of WATA awards. The WATA Hall of Fame, Distinguished Service Award, Outstanding Educator Award, Honorary Membership and other special designated awards are awarded under the guidance of the Awards Committee. The WATA seeks to recognize those individuals who have distinguished themselves in service to the athletic training profession. Members are encouraged to review the criteria of each award and, when appropriate, nominate deserving colleagues for recognition.

We encourage all of our web visitors to browse the WATA Hall of Fame information and to review the list of previous winners in all of our award categories. Our organization stands on the shoulders of those who have come before us to advance the profession of athletic training; we are pleased to honor their hard work.

Please feel free to contact the Honors and Awards Committee Chair: Anna Linstedt if you have any questions.
