BJJAGB Anti-Doping Team, , Accrington, Lancashire, BB5 6PN.
Athletes need support, guidance and education delivery to support them in their role and responsibilities towards clean sport. It is important that the BJJAGB & UK Anti-Doping work with aspiring athletes from a young age to support them in developing intrinsic values about clean sport.
We want all our athletes to associate themselves with 100% me, the quality mark for all clean athletes. The 100% me programme seeks to reinforce the core values of clean, fair competition, whilst underlining their achievements as being a clean athlete.
The BJJAGB understands that we have a duty of care to all our athletes to support them in being clean. Our Education Delivery Network helps us achieve this. Trained Anti-Doping Advisors & Educators help us to deliver anti-doping education sessions. Our current programme has 3 trained educators and 6 anti-doping advisors.
At the BJJAGB we are looking to build on our current tutor programme and establish a robust Education Delivery Network.
The Education Delivery Network consists of the following roles:
Everyone involved in the Anti-Doping Education Team is passionate about ensuring that our athletes are fully prepared for life in the competitive sporting environment. Our aim is to promote positive attitudes and values for clean sportsmen and women.
How to get involved
If you are interested in anti-doping and think you can help athletes or athlete support personnel then please read below for details:
Becoming an Advisor
If you would like to become an Advisor, you will need to undertake a basic online course in anti-doping. Following the course, you will need to show what you have learned via a short multi-choice assessment.
As an Advisor, we expect that you are able to provide factual advice to athletes and those around them on core anti-doping topics and that you are fully aware of the anti-doping tools available to athletes which you should signpost them to.
For more information on becoming an Advisor, in the first instance, please contact your association leader who will then contact Michael Holden BJJAGB Anti-Doping Officer on your behalf.
Becoming an Educator
Firstly you need to contact the BJJAGB Anti-Doping Officer to register your interest. He will have some additional advice and guidance on the role of an educator and selection process within our sport and our expectations. Details of the training requirements may vary but you will be expected to undertake a two-day training programme for educator accreditation.
