Support Personnel

Rights & Responsibilities

Everyone, including Athlete Support Personnel (ASP), has a duty to protect clean sport. The Anti-Doping Rules apply to you too – so don’t let one bad decision ruin a potential sporting career.

If you work with athletes – whether you are a coach, physio or parent/guardian, your athletes trust and rely on your expertise, guidance and advice, helping them achieve their sporting goals. With your help and vigilance, we can support athletes in their decision-making and reduce the incidents of both deliberate and inadvertent doping.

All ASP need to know the essential anti-doping practices and tools available, to help ensure athletes remain clean.

This is especially important for sports medics and nutritionists, who need to be confident in their practice and advice to athletes at all times.

We know anti-doping can seem complicated and daunting. UKAD are here to help you with various education and information programmes, which are delivered across the sporting landscape.

Below are a number of helpful links to information on the UKAD website that applies to you as Athlete Support Personnel.
