WHAT IS CLEAN SPORT?

 

Hockey Wales proudly supports Clean Sport and believes that all athletes have the right to participate in hockey knowing that they, their teammates and their opposition do so without the use of prohibited or recreational substances.

Hockey Wales, and its affiliated clubs, organisations and their members, are bound by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) Code and all associated Standards. Hockey Wales works closely with both WADA and UK Anti-Doping (UKAD)  to conduct a comprehensive anti-doping programme that covers education, testing and results management.

RESPONSIBILITY - STRICT LIABILITY

Hockey Wales adopt and fully comply with the rules set by UKAD and the International Hockey Federation (FIH) which are in line with the WADA Code.  These rules can be accessed under further resources.

As an athlete YOU are responsible for any banned substance:

  • you use

  • you attempt to use

  • found in your system

Regardless of how it got there or whether you intended to cheat or not.

Anti-Doping Rule Violations

Breaking the anti-doping rules can result in a ban from all sport. The Code outlines the Anti-Doping Rule Violations (ADRVs). Athletes and athlete support personnel need to make sure they are fully aware of these violations, and the consequences of breaking them. For more information and what this means for those individuals, click here

For information on individuals serving a ban from sport, visit UKAD’s sanction page on their website.

SUPPLEMENTS

Supplements can be a significant risk to athletes as it is not possible to provide a 100% guarantee that any supplement does not contain a prohibited substance. Athletes need to be responsible for knowing what supplements are, the risks associated with them and how the risks can be minimised. 

Informed Sport is a global testing and certification programme for sports and nutritional supplements. This can help to reduce the risk for individuals considering using supplements.
