Rules apply to athletes and athlete support personnel. The Irish Anti-doping Programme seeks to preserve the spirit of sport. By virtue of their participation in Basketball Ireland activities, members, including minors, agree to abide by the Anti-Doping Rules.
The following sections highlight key areas with regard to Anti-Doping. Basketball Ireland advises all members to read and understand the anti-doping rules and to understand your responsibilities under the rules. The consequences of not adhering to Anti-Doping rules can be severe for athletes and their support personnel such as coaches and parents; therefore it is critical that any questions/concerns be clarified with either the Basketball Ireland Anti-Doping Officer or the Irish Sports Council.
The Irish Sports Council have recently launched a "Report Doping” form on their website to help us fight against doping in sport. Anyone reporting via this encrypted form can do so anonymously if they prefer. Obviously the more detail a person provides, the better. The form can be found at www.irishsportscouncil.ie/report or by clicking on the image above.
Basketball Ireland’s policy is that doping is contrary to the spirit of sport and every member has a duty to ensure that the sport is free of doping.
All club personnel have a responsibility to ensure that club members are aware of the Irish Anti-Doping Rules and that there is an atmosphere supporting a drug free sport within the club. A complete copy of the Irish Anti-Doping Rules is available below.
This page provides up-to-date information from World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA), Irish Sports Council, FIBA and Basketball Ireland rules and regulations in the area of doping.
The consequences of not adhering to Anti-Doping rules can be severe for athletes and their support personnel such as coaches and parents; therefore it is critical that any questions/concerns be clarified with either the Anti- Doping Officer in Basketball Ireland or the Irish Sports Council.
