Antidoping Information

Our Anti-doping Education is aimed at, but not limited to, all levels of coaches and support personnel, elite teams - junior and senior, and age group athletes training and competing in events.

The main message is about is pretty simple "Strict Liability". I.e,  "You (athlete) are solely responsible for any banned substance you use, attempt to use, or is found in your system regardless of how it got there and whether there was an intention to cheat or not".

The main aim is to educate members, clubs, coaches and athletes to be aware about Clean Sport, to promote it and to avoid any inadvertent doping.
