Athlete Support Personnel
Everyone, including Athlete Support Personnel (ASP), has a duty to protect clean sport. The Anti-Doping Rules apply to you too - so don’t let one bad decision ruin a potential sporting career.
If you are a coach, doctor, physiotherapist, or parent/guardian for example, then you are part of an athlete's support network. The athlete depends on you for experience, direction, and guidance. Working together, we can ensure that athletes make informed decisions on clean sport, decreasing the likelihood of intentional and inadvertent doping.
All ASP need to know the essential anti-doping practices and tools available, to help ensure athletes remain clean.
Although this can be deemed especially important for sports medics and nutritionists, who need to be confident in their practice and advice to athletes at all times, all ASP have a responsibility to also recognise that they too must abide by certain aspects of the World Anti-Doping Code.
We know anti-doping can seem complicated and daunting. UKAD are here to help you with various education and information programmes, which are delivered across the sporting landscape.
Here are some helpful links to some information that applies to you as Athlete Support Personnel.
