The Testing Process 

Athletes can be tested any time, any place. 

We test to deter those vulnerable to a doping decision and to find those who chose to cheat by using banned substances. 

Testing can take place in-competition at events, or out-of-competition, in training venues, or even at an athlete’s home. 

Testing is intelligence-led and risk-based, however it will always be conducted with ‘no advanced notice’.

Testing Process for Minors 

As an athlete under the age of 18, you are considered a minor. You may not be aware, but you can still be tested. 

Much of the testing process is the same as older athletes, however modifications are made to ensure minors are safeguarded.   

Testing Process for Athletes with an Impairment 

For those athletes with an impairment such as physical, visual or intellectual there are some modifications to the testing process to ensure it is accessible and suitable for all.
