HATA History and Highlights
HATA was founded by eight members in 1985 - Linda Rowan, Chris Balske, Melody Toth, Wes Sphar, Pete Howard, Eric Okasaki, Glenn Beachy, and Jayson Goo.  In 1987, University of Hawaii - Manoa offers an Athletic Training Curriculum. The membership doubles by 1988 and work begins to get a Certified Athletic Trainer in each of the public secondary schools. The first Annual HATA Symposium is held in 1993 and a pilot program of 10 full-time athletic trainers are placed in select public secondary schools across the Hawaiian islands.  HATA sponsors the first annual Student Athletic Trainer Workshop for high school students in 1995.  In 1997, all public secondary schools receive a full-time Athletic Trainer position.  In 1998, Hawaii hosts the Far West Athletic Trainers' Association (FWATA) symposium for the first time ever and the University of Hawaii’s Eric Okasaki, ATC receives a National Athletic Trainers’ Association (NATA) Athletic Trainer Service Award.  HATA offers scholarships to high school seniors interested in the sports medicine field in 1999.  In 2002, HATA unanimously votes to pursue regulation.  FWATA comes to Hawaii for a second time in 2003, hosted in Honolulu.  In 2004, Dr. Linda Rowan, MD, ATC receives the Far West Athletic Trainers’ Association (FWATA) Most Distinguished Athletic Trainer Award.  In 2005, 10 select public secondary schools are given second full-time athletic trainer positions which eventually lead to many Hawaii public secondary schools receiving a second full-time athletic trainer position.  Currently, there are over 70 full-time certified athletic trainers working in the State of Hawaii Department of Education public secondary schools system.  Also in 2005, Kamehameha Schools’ Cindy Clivio, ATC receives a National Athletic Trainers’ Association  (NATA) Athletic Trainer Service Award.  In 2007, Cindy Clivio, ATC receives the Far West Athletic Trainers’ Association (FWATA) Most Distinguished Athletic Trainer Award.  In 2009, the HATA Symposium is held on a neighbor island (Hilo, Hawaii) for the first time; and Beth Young, ATC of Punahou School receives the National Athletic Trainers’ Association (NATA) Athletic Trainer Service Award.  FWATA returns to Hawaii for a third time in 2010.  In 2011, Reid Takano, ATC of Moanalua High School receives NATA District 8/Far West Athletic Trainers’ Association Gatorade Secondary Schools Athletic Trainer Award.  In 2011 and 2012, Glenn Beachy, ATC of Punahou School receives the Far West Athletic Trainers’ Association (FWATA) Most Distinguished Athletic Trainer Award and the National Athletic Trainers’ Association (NATA) Athletic Trainer Service Award, respectively.  In 2013, Hawaii achieves state registration for nationally certified athletic trainers working in Hawaii; this is in order to protect the public (our Hawaii communities) from those who are not qualified to work or call themselves athletic trainers from doing so.  Also, Cindy Clivio, ATC of Kamehameha Schools receives the National Athletic Trainers’ Association Most Distinguished Athletic Trainer Award – the highest national athletic trainer award ever to be received by a Hawaii athletic trainer to date.  In 2015, Ross Oshiro, ATC of the Queen’s Medical Center for Sports Medicine (and former State of Hawaii Department of Education Athletic Health Care Coordinator) receives the National Athletic Trainers’ Association (NATA) Athletic Trainer Service Award.  Hawaii will again host the return of the Far West Athletic Trainer Association symposium for the fourth time in the Summer of 2016 in Kona. Presently, HATA has a total of almost 200 members.
