Face-to-Face anti-doping presentations

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 education@asada.gov.au or by calling 13 000 27232.

 

Lesson plans and resources for teachers

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.
