One of our experienced anti-doping presenters can attend your training session or camp and deliver a one-hour presentation to a group of athletes or support personnel.
In addition to building a sporting group's awareness of their obligations in anti-doping, face-to-face presentations allow athletes and support people to interact with and ask questions of experienced ASADA staff. Sessions are generally offered free of charge to National teams and squads of recognised national sporting organisations, while sessions for other groups may be on a user pays basis (see schedule of fees for pricing).
For sports who wish to develop in-house capacity to deliver anti-doping education sessions to their sport or club, contact us to discuss training opportunities and approaches.
You can organise an education session by email firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 13 000 27232.
This simple reference guide outlines the health consequences of using doping substances.
The Dangers of Doping: Get the Facts brochure specifically targets young people and addresses why doping is a concern beyond being against the rules of sport. It was developed in partnership with the World Anti-Doping Agency and includes the risks associated with using supplements, as well as the health consequences associated with specific substances (including steroids, EPO, stimulants, hGH, masking agents, marijuana and narcotics).
ASADA and the National Integrity of Sport Unit (NISU) have developed a suite of lesson plans which can be used to inform students from years 9 to 10 on issues explored in the National Curriculum for Health and Physical Education. The plans include topics such as performance-enhancing drugs in sport, playing by the rules, ethical decision making, and other sports integrity subjects. The plans are adaptable for use in a senior secondary environment.
In addition to our eLearning resources, students can explore the ASADA website to find information about:
- the number of tests completed by ASADA (annual reports)
- drug-testing procedures
- who is subject to testing
- current anti-doping rule violations
- resources to enable athletes to check the status of their medication or substance.
