SLSA’s position on anti Doping

SLSA condemns doping as fundamentally contrary to the spirit of sport. The purpose of the anti doping policy is to protect Athletes’ fundamental right to participate in doping-free sport and to ensure harmonised, coordinated and effective anti-doping programs at the international and national level with regard to detection, deterrence and prevention of doping. 

Who does the policy apply to?

This anti doping applies to Athletes and Athlete Support Personnel as defined under the WADA Code. It also applies to Members, employees and contractors of SLSA and any other Person who has agreed to be bound by it. (link to WADA code)
