WADA has developed a set of tools to assist stakeholders with their anti-doping education needs.
The Athlete Learning Program about Health and Anti-Doping (ALPHA) has been developed with the input of eLearning specialists, athletes, anti-doping specialists and anti-doping social scientists. It was officially launched at the ADO Symposium, in Lausanne on 25-26 March 2014.
Anti-Doping Learning Hub
The Anti-Doping Learning Hub, a collaboration between FISU, WADA and the 2015 Gwangju Summer Universiade Organising Committee, is designed to be a comprehensive overview of doping in sport and issues related to it. Its primary target audience is first year university students who will one day be involved in sport in many different capacities and disciplines.
WADA has created CoachTrue to assist anti-doping organizations, coaching associations and universities in providing anti-doping education to coaches.

Dangers of doping Leaflet
The Dangers of Doping: Get the Facts leaflet provides athletes with information regarding the health risks associated with doping, by outlining the health consequences of using doping substances.
WADA, in partnership with the Council of Europe, developed Model Guidelines for Core Information/Education Programs to Prevent Doping in Sport. The purpose of these Guidelines is to support the development, implementation, delivery, and evaluation of an effective core education program, within a broader anti-doping program, that actively addresses deterrence and detection. The document was developed based on extensive consultation with key stakeholders.
Books for Children
WADA’s Choose Your Own Adventure books provide the reader the ability to explore decisions about doping, both good and bad, without suffering the real life consequences. The books put the reader in the position to make multiple choices resulting in multiple endings.
In Track Star!, You are the main character, a talented young runner who believes that your only shot at a university education is through an athletic scholarship. As the pressure mounts, you question whether cutting corners using performance-enhancing substances or even supplements would be worth the risk. As you seek advice from coaches, teammates, friends and even your parents, you are brought down different paths.
In Always Picked Last, you are a young elf who is always picked last. Many adventures await when your elf dad suggests that you gain confidence by being good at something that no one else does. Confronting “Weed People” (aka humans) in the Upper World, accepting the help of a friendly troll, trying out magic and rainbow surfing—which path will finally have you picked first and which will leave you feeling like “the biggest loser of all elf history?”
