It is mandatory for all athletes competing for Great Britain to attend a clean sport workshop every two years. These will be offered online this year, and any athletes aiming to be selected for internationals this year must complete one, or they will be unable to take up a team place.

The interactive webinars will provide advice and guidance to help athletes make the right decisions when it comes to training and competing. For athletes, coaches and support personnel it will provide an introduction to clean sport and antidoping, share tools to help you compete clean such as checking medications or using a food first approach and provide an overview of the testing procedure.
The sessions are also open to team staff or parents wishing to learn more. We will make them as interactive and informative as possible and each session will last approximately one hour. Registers will be taken for each session so we can share these with team managers to cross reference against entry lists to ensure all athletes are educated.
Meeting links etc will be sent out 2 weeks prior to the webinar to those who have registered to attend and a reminder issued 48 hours prior to each session.
