Committed to Clean Sport
Hartpury is currently working towards the highest level of anti-doping accreditation, showing its commitment to clean sport.
We expect all of our athletes – elite and recreational – to play, train and compete in line with the spirit of sport, including the anti-doping rules.
An action plan has been submitted to UK Anti-Doping (UKAD) setting out how Hartpury is continuing to raise awareness among its elite athletes and all students and staff as part of a college-wide education programme.
Hartpury coaches and staff will not condone, assist or in any way support the use of prohibited substances and methods.
Workshops are initially planned for coaches, elite athletes and other academic and support staff, providing more information on current anti-doping legislation, as well as signposting to where they can go for more support and advice. These will then be rolled out to athletes participating at all levels.
Some coaches and staff will also be trained as anti-doping educators and posters setting out Hartpury’s clean sport commitment will go up around the campus.
UKAD will also carry out regular testing as part of the accreditation process and, later, Hartpury will be able to initiate its own testing.
