The '49 Club is the highest honor that can be bestowed on an EATA member. It recognizes members whose contributions have been significant, substantial and long-standing.
EATA Excellence in Leadership Award
The first Cramer award was given in 1966. It is given in honor of Chuck and Frank Cramer and given to a member who has had an impact on the EATA.
EATA Excellence in Secondary School AT Award
It is given to a secondary school AT who has outstanding contributions to the profession.
David Moyer Award
The Moyer award is given to a team physician who is very supportive of the athletic training profession in a variety of ways. It was first given in 1982.
Pinky Newell Address
Pinky is considered the father of modern athletic training. To give this address is an honor and is one that is thought provoking for those members in the audience.
The Presidential award is given to that individual whom the EATA President feels has advanced the EATA and the profession. This person does not have to be an AT.
