Canadian Athletic Therapists Association Student Leadership Award

* Selected by the Departmental Awards Committee

The Canadian Athletic Therapists Association Student Leadership Award is designed to honour Athletic Therapy Certification Candidates enrolled in a CATA accredited institution who demonstrate exceptional leadership skills both in the classroom and in the community.
There will be one Certification Candidate selected per accredited institution and the winner will receive $200 to be applied to his or her membership dues for the membership year immediately following the granting of the award. This sum will be donated by the CATA and will be applied directly to the successful Certification Candidate’s account.

The recipient of the Canadian Athletic Therapists Association Student Leadership Award must:

  1. be a member of the CATA who has maintained his or her status;
  2. be a member of his or her regional chapter who has maintained their status; 
  3. be a current student enrolled in a CATA accredited institution and is actively pursuing a degree in Athletic Therapy;
  4. demonstrate proven leadership qualities while enrolled in the Athletic Therapy curriculum and,
  5. demonstrate proven leadership qualities while being actively involved in the community.

This award will differ from the others offered by the CATA in that the Association committees will not be selecting the award winners. In order to recognize the institutions individually, we feel that it would be best to have each program facilitate their own process to derive a winner. The Member Services Committee will aid the institutions in the application/nomination process, as well as the selection process as needed.
