Welcome home SCATA!!!
~ The Columbia Convention Center
The location of the 2019 and 2020 Annual Symposiums will be moving to the Columbia Metropolitan Convention Center.
Working in tandem with the Convention Center, we have designated the Hilton Hotel as our host hotel. This move will allow the organization to continue to grow and offer the membership additional opportunities and allow the Program Committee to expand educational offerings while improving attendees, presenters, and vendor overall experiences. The facility itself offers a bright and modern design that will welcome our membership. The facility is also located in the heart of Columbia , walking distance from shops, restaurants, and galleries. Columbia is loaded with great restaurants, whether you want a traditional Southern meat-and-three or an outdoor dining experience.
Now that our state association is holding the SCATA Annual Symposium at the Columbia Metropolitan Convention Center, the program committee for the SCATA Annual Symposium is expanding the educational experience to include original research and case study poster presentations. Clinicians, educators, graduate students, and undergraduate students are all welcome and encouraged to submit an application.
If you would like to share a case study or original research study poster at this year’s symposium, submit an application by following the directions outlined HERE.
Any research or case study abstract accepted for presentation at the 2018 or 2019 NATA or ACSM Annual Symposium will automatically be accepted for poster presentation at the 2019 SCATA Symposium.
The deadline for submission is June 1, 2019.
One of the priorities of the organization is to promote the profession of Athletic Training by supporting and encouraging future professionals. Each year the SCATA Scholarship Program awards three scholarships to deserving students. These awards include the following scholarships:
Scholarship funding is secured through a variety of sources, including corporate and individual support, an annual golf tournament, a raffle at the annual symposium and other events throughout the year.
