The Range of Motion Anti-Doping Policy has been developed in line with the purpose of ASADA to protect Range of Motion's sporting integrity and the health of our clients through the prevention of doping.
Range of Motion has a zero tolerance approach to the use of any substances listed on the World Anti-Doping Code Prohibited List. Clients found breaking the rules will be required to complete counseling and will receive full support from Range of Motion to ensure future adherance.
- The responsibility falls with the athlete to check all and any substances before use. Under the World Anti-Doping Code's strict liability policy you, the athlete, are responsible for any substance found in your body regardless of how it got there. You must check the status of any substance and method before using it.
- If substances are required to manage a medical condition, care should be taken to avoid any prohibited substances. Should there be any question, the individual is required to provide Range of Motion documentation from their GP stating the medications and the reason for their prescription.
- In some cases a therapeutic use exemption can be requested. A Therapeutic Use Exemption (TUE) is an exemption that allows an athlete to use, for therapeutic purposes only, an otherwise prohibited substance or method (of administering a substance) which may be present during competition. Should an individual be using a substance that would ordinarily require a TUE, Dan Williams will make contact with the organisers of an event to determine whether a TUE is required or whether a declaration of the substance is sufficient. This will take place on a case-by-case basis.
- Should an individual have any queries on the above, they must bring the query to the attention of Dan Williams.
