How can we better fight against doping?
We are convinced that the long-term solution to preventing doping is through effective prevention and clean sport values-based education programs. This way we can altogether create a strong anti-doping culture.
There are a few online education programs, created by WADA and made available by the FIG, meant for gymnasts, coaches, national federations, parents or any other person wishing to know more about the anti-doping world. You can find these programs below with a short introduction, and we invite you to use them actively!
The FIG promotes the use of this program called CoachTrue, which is an online learning tool that will allow coaches to learn more about the fight against doping, and thus be more effective in preventing it. This software was developed by WADA, it provides a platform for coaches of elite athletes, and a platform dedicated to recreational sports coaches.
The following features are included in the elite-level module of CoachTrue:
Pre-Test: Allows coaches to identify current knowledge base
Tutorials: A series of presentations with voice-overs that provide essential information on the following topics:
- Health consequences of doping
- Results management
- Therapeutic use exemptions
- Decision making
Scenario-Based Activities: Practical application of acquired knowledge to possible real-life scenarios.
Who Wants to Play True: A fun way for coaches to test their knowledge of anti-doping issues.
Post-Test & Certification: Once coaches have completed all required elements, including a final assessment of learning (post-test), they are awarded a certificate of completion.
