SportsAid supports the next generation of British athletes by giving them financial support and recognition during the early years of their careers. By signing up to a vision of clean sport, SportsAid is confirming the UKAD and World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) position that cheating, including doping, in sport is fundamentally contrary to the spirit of sport, undermining the otherwise positive impact of sport on society.
As part of their commitment, all SportsAid athletes are expected to play, train and compete in line with the spirit of sport, which includes adopting the principles of clean sport. SportsAid staff are also expected not to condone, assist or in any way support the use of a prohibited substance or method in any aspects of their work.
SportsAid athletes receive access to a wide range of educational resources through UKAD’s100% me programme, which outline how to be successful and confident while retaining the values of clean and fair competition. UKAD engages directly with athletes and support personnel at SportsAid events where UKAD’s National Trainers deliver interactive education workshops and outreach stands.
