Our Clean Sport Commitment
Clean Sport Commitment Statement
All sporting participants have the right to compete in doping-free sport (Clean Sport). The Chester Triathlon Club adopts the UK Anti-Doping (UKAD) and World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) position that cheating, including doping, in sport is fundamentally contrary to the spirit of sport, undermining the otherwise positive impact of sport on society.
To this end Chester Triathlon Club commits to support Clean Sport in the UK in the following ways:
- Chester Triathlon Club supports the mission of UKAD and WADA in achieving Clean Sport.
- All athletes are expected to play, train and compete in line with the spirit of sport, including the Anti-Doping Rules.
- All coaches and athlete support personnel are expected to perform their role in line with the spirit of sport, including the Anti-Doping Rules.
- Chester Triathlon Club is committed to supporting the prevention of doping behaviour in the UK in collaboration with other sporting bodies.
- Club members and officials will not condone, assist or in any way support the use of prohibited substances and methods (unless permitted by a Therapeutic Use Exemption) in any aspects of their work.
- Breaches of this, or any rules/policies referred to in Chester Triathlon Club’s own code of practice/conduct will be acted upon accordingly.
- All members and officials will be expected to contact UKAD should they become aware of an athlete using or considering the usage of a prohibited substance or prohibited method. This contact should be done in confidence on the dedicated confidential Report Doping in Sport line.
- Chester Triathlon Club will uphold any sanctions placed upon an athlete by UK Anti-Doping or other associated body in accordance with the World Anti-Doping Code.
