Clean Sport at Team Bath
All sporting participants have the right to compete in doping-free sport (Clean Sport).
The University of Bath has been awarded ‘elite status’ by the UK Anti-Doping [UKAD] Accreditation Programme and adopts the UKAD and World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) position that cheating, including doping, is fundamentally contrary to the spirit of sport, undermining the otherwise positive impact it can have on society.
To this end the University of Bath commits to support Clean Sport in the UK in the following ways:
- The University of Bath supports the mission of UK Anti-Doping and WADA in achieving Clean Sport.
- All athletes are expected to play, train and compete in line with the spirit of sport, including the anti-doping rules.
- All coaches and athlete support personnel are expected to perform their role in line with the spirit of sport, including the anti-doping rules.
- The University of Bath is committed to supporting the prevention of doping behaviour in the UK in collaboration with other sporting bodies.
- University of Bath staff will not condone, assist or in any way support the use of prohibited substances and methods (unless permitted by a Therapeutic Use Exemption) in any aspects of their work.
- All University of Bath staff will be expected to contact UK Anti-Doping should they become aware of an athlete or NGB member using or considering the usage of a prohibited substance or prohibited method. This contact should be done in confidence on the dedicated confidential Report Doping in Sport line.
- The University of Bath will uphold any sanctions placed upon an athlete by UK Anti-Doping or other associated body in accordance with the World Anti-Doping Code.
