The Athlete Whereabouts Programme

The Athlete Whereabouts Programme is about protecting every athlete’s right to clean sport through out-of-competition testing that can take place without notice at any time. No-notice testing is a powerful way of deterring and detecting doping in sport. 

If you’ve been assigned to a testing pool by us (DFSNZ) or your International Federation then you are required to provide and maintain detailed information about where you are, whether you’re on holiday, training or travelling.

Providing accurate and up-to-date information about your Whereabouts helps to protect the integrity of your sport; multiple failures to comply with Whereabouts requirements can lead to an anti-doping rule violation and a ban from sport.

How to update your Whereabouts

Update your Whereabouts information online via the Anti-Doping Administration and Management System (ADAMS). Once you're logged in and have submitted your Whereabouts online, you can download the Athlete Central app and make changes to your Whereabouts on-the-go.
