Drug Free Sport NZ has introduced three state-of-the-art e-learning programmes to ensure that as many athletes, coaches and support personnel as possible get access to anti-doping education.
Our online programmes enable athletes and support personnel to access a range of modules about the anti-doping rules and the risks of doping from anywhere in the world at any time. The programmes provide more athletes than ever before with comprehensive education to help them understand their responsibilities to clean sport and the risks associated with doping.
The seven module Level One anti-doping education programme covers essentials such as:
- prohibited substances and methods
- taking medications while competing
- the risks of supplement use and;
- drug testing
E-Learning also provides links to DFSNZ's Twitter feed, online videos and resources.
Level Two is for athletes and support personnel who have previously completed the Level One programme. It recaps key anti-doping messages and provides updates on need-to-know information. This programme is primarily designed for those who compete or coach at national or international levels.
The Coaches programme provides practical ideas for coaches to create clean sporting environments in which to support their athletes. DFSNZ recommends all coaches, managers and parents complete the Coaches e-learning programme. In fact, six of the ten anti-doping rules apply directly to support personnel
If you are an athlete or support person who needs the completion of your anti-doping education registered, please launch the Level One, Level Two or Coaches e-learning programmes here: https://e-learning.dfsnz.org.nz
