DRUGS IN SPORT POLICY
Aims - Prevention and Deterrence of Doping Practices
Diving South Australia Inc (DSA) is committed to the prevention and deterrence of the use of doping practices in the sport of diving.
DSA, through its membership of Diving Australia Inc (DA), has adopted the FINA approved Swimming Australia Anti-Doping Policy (Anti-Doping Policy). (DA is an affiliated organisation of Swimming Australia and the Anti-Doping Policy therefore applies to DA and its members. DSA is a member of DA, and the Anti-Doping Policy therefore applies to DSA.)
Commitments by DSA Board
The Board of DSA commits to each of the following:
- to abide by the provisions of the South Australian Drugs in Sport Policy;
- to actively develop and implement drug education and intervention programs for its members, appropriate to their age, role and responsibilities;
- to take all reasonable steps to ensure that diving members of DSA comply with the Anti-Doping Policy; and
- to support the testing of divers by providing the Australian Sports Drug Agency (where applicable) with athlete and event details as well as with regular updated 'Athlete Whereabouts' information.
