Education

An informed athlete is an empowered athlete

In accordance with the International Standard for Education, a mandatory component of the WADA Code, our education activities are geared towards promoting good values and develop behaviors that foster and protect the spirit of sport and to prevent intentional and unintentional doping.

Our education programme aims to empower athletes, coaches, parents, medical staff and other support personnel with up-to-date information on the World Anti-Doping Code, the ‘Rules’, rights and responsibilities of all involved, the doping control process, risks and consequences of prohibited substances and dietary 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, as well as risking their future sporting career.

 

 

While it is important to highlight the negative impact of doping, it is also our duty to promote the use of sound and effective alternatives to support performance, health and well-being of current and future generations of athletes.  Our Education Resources Library offer many resources, such as practical sports nutrition advice from credible, evidence-based resources.
