Athlete Whereabouts is a system that enables athletes to be easily found and tested without any advance notice.

It’s used by all anti-doping organisations and these “surprise” tests help to detect and deter drug use.  Athlete Whereabouts plays a key role in protecting clean athletes and the integrity of sport.  

The Athlete Whereabouts system requires athletes to log regular information about their whereabouts so that they can be tested.  It’s important you follow the whereabouts rules because if you don’t you could be found to have committed an anti-doping rule violation.  

To submit Whereabouts, please use the new system, ADAMS.  

  • Once you are logged in and have submitted your whereabouts online you can then download the Athlete Central Whereabouts App and make any changes to your Whereabouts on the go.
  • The Athlete Central app is available for use and download from the Apple Store and Google Play.
