Protecting the Right to Enjoy Doping-Free Sport

Clean Sport Essentials


UK Anti-Doping’s vision is Clean Sport.

We want to collectively work with coaches and other Athlete Support Personnel (ASP) to ensure that we collectively ‘Protect the right to participate in clean sport’, UK Anti-Doping’s mission.

Coaches are integral to this mission.

The following are our clean sport essentials for coaches:

  • Develop a coaching environment that nurtures a culture of personal excellence rather than win at all costs
  • Develop positive values and beliefs in all athletes you coach and any other athlete support personnel you work with
  • Ensure athletes are aware of the principle of strict liability 
  • Know what the 10 anti-doping rule violations are and how they apply to you and your athletes 
  • Be able to act as an athlete representative during a test 
  • Ask if you are unsure before advising athletes 
  • Know the risks of athletes using supplements 
  • Protect the integrity of sport, report anything suspicious either directly to UK Anti-Doping or via the 24-hour confidential phone line Report Doping in Sport
