Education & Prevention

Education Tools

The World Anti-Doping Agency offers many different tools to assist stakeholders with their education programs and help them educate target groups with suitable activities. There are tool kits of activities customized for Coaches, Teachers, Program Officers and Sport Physicians, and many different brochures providing anti-doping information. Also, WADA has created interactive computer games such as the Play True Quiz and Play True Youth Quiz, and other tools such as card games. Books and videos exploring numerous subjects related to the fight against doping in sport are also available.

Awareness & Outreach

WADA promotes a social awareness campaign that aims to familiarize audiences with clean sport messages. WADA’s Outreach Program can be used to reach athletes during sports events of all kinds. The Outreach Model was created to provide stakeholders with tools to deliver their own awareness activities.

WADA’s e-Learning Tools integrate values-based education that improves understanding and leads to better moral reasoning and decision making. They also provide target groups with needed information about anti-doping. ALPHA is designed for athletes, Coach True for Coaches, Sport Physician’s Tool Kit Online for Physicians, and the University Anti-Doping E-Textbook for university students.

Education Guidelines

Education Guidelines & Information outline current, accurate, practical information to help protect clean sport and ensure compliance with the World Anti-Doping Code. These documents ensure stakeholders have the information they need, so that they can abide by anti-doping rules and regulations.

WADA is committed to improving evidence-based doping prevention strategies through social science research.

Understanding the fundamental differences between athletes who choose to compete clean and those who resort to doping or why some athletes decided to dope – despite being well aware of the harmful effects of doping and of anti-doping rules - will assist in ensuring that doping prevention strategies are effective and efficient.
