Education

An informed athlete is an empowered athlete

Anti-Doping Education plays a pivotal role in promoting the values of ethics and fair play in sport, thereby protecting the “spirit of sport” and true sportsmanship.

It is also important to us to keep athletes, coaches, parents, medical staff and other support personnel up-to-date with the World Anti-Doping Code, the anti-doping rules, the doping control process, rights and responsibilities, risks and consequences of prohibited substances and supplements and being found guilty of anti-doping violation.

Education is especially important amongst younger athletes as they, too often, are lured into using ‘pills and potions’ (from supplements to illicit drugs) that offer quick fixes and false promises of efficacy, often at the cost of harming health, growth and development, performance and getting banned from sport.

While it is important to highlight the negative effects, it is also our duty to promote the use of sound and effective alternatives to support performance as well as the health and well-being of current and future generations of athletes.
