Clean Sport Commitment Statement
All sporting participants have the right to compete in doping-free sport (Clean Sport). Jersey 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 Jersey Triathlon Club commits to support Clean Sport in the following ways:
- The 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.
- The club is committed to supporting the prevention of doping behaviour in collaboration with other sporting bodies.
- Club members 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 the club’s own code of practice/conduct will be acted upon accordingly.
- Club members will be expected to contact UKAD should they become aware of an athlete or a member of a National Governing Body 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 – 08000 32 23 32
- The 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.
