Since 1986 GHATS has hosted a student athletic trainer workshop.  This workshop is believed to be the largest of its kind in the United States.  Each year approximately 900 high school student athletic trainers, professional athletic trainers, exhibitors, and speakers attend this one day event.  Thank You to our Corporate Partners. Without their financial assistance this would not be the nation's largest FREE Student Athletic Trainer Workshop!

robert pieper poster contest

Beginning with the 1992 Greater Houston Athletic Trainers Society Student Athletic Trainer Clinic the poster contest has been named in Robert Howard Pieper's memory. There are three sections of the Robert Pieper Poster Contest which include beginner, advanced, and computer generated. MORE>>>

At least one athletic trainer from the school must be a paid member of GHATS by day of workshop to win the poster contest, taping contest, or awards. (An exception is made for schools without a school based AT)

taping contest rules

  • Each high school may enter only one student

  • Preliminaries will be held during the morning lecture sessions – finalist will be posted and finals will be after lunch

  • Tape job must include but is not limited to: 2 proximal anchors, 1 distal anchor, 3 stirrups, 2 horseshoes (laterals), 1 heel lock to each side, 2 figure 8’s, and a final cover. (Continuous heel locks and figure 8’s are allowed.)

  • Tape job will be judged in the following categories – neatness, stability, comfort, and time

  • Each category is worth 5 points

  • In the event of a tie – neatness and time will be the determining factors. If necessary, the absolute time will determine the winner. (i.e. A 37 second time will beat a 42 second time.)
