The Framework acts as the first step a national governing body of sport (NGB) must take towards meeting its obligations set out in the UK National Anti-doping Policy, in turn helping UKAD run effective anti-doping programmes and ensuring that the NGB is working to mitigate the risk of doping in its sport.
“We are pleased to have been named amongst governing bodies committed to clean sport. Of course, this is ongoing work, and we are required to continually evidence how we are meeting our responsibilities in basketball.
“Through UKAD’s Clean Sport Week campaign, we will champion the education and initiatives that bring about a culture of competition where our athletes win well, without doping.”
Clean Sport Week runs from the 22-26 May, and will showcase a range of educational content under the theme ‘Teamwork in Clean Sport’ – collectively: athletes, coaches, doctors, medical staff, parents and BE are all responsible for keeping basketball clean and free from doping.
Through UKAD’s Clean Sport Hub, there are free educational courses for athletes, students, coaches and practitioners.
