ASADA – Drugs in Sport

Illegal drug use in sport is a social, health and legal problem that needs to be addressed in accordance with protocols established between Australian Sports Anti-Doping Authority [ASADA], State Sporting Bodies and the Victorian Police Force.

As a Regional Sports Academy, the SWAS is governed by State and National bodies and it is a requirement that all athletes have a thorough understanding of ASADA and drugs in sport.
