Protecting clean athletes and promoting clean sport​​​​​​​


Canoe Slalom NZ have adopted or agreed to New Zealand's Sports Anti-Doping Rules (SADRs). The SADRs give effect to the World Anti-Doping Code in New Zealand.

The rules apply to anyone who is a member of - or who participates in - a sport that has adopted or agreed to the SADRs regardless of level of competition, age or role. The rules apply to athletes, as well as coaches, administrators and support personnel.

To stay on the right side of the rules, you must avoid breaking the rules. There are 11 key ways to break the rules, and they are known as the anti-doping rule violations (ADVRs)
