New Anti-Doping Education Online for Coaches
24 Jun 2010
The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) has just launched on their official website the new online educational platforms for coaches of elite-level athletes and coaches of young or recreational-level athletes.
Called ‘CoachTrue’, this resource is a computer-based anti-doping learning tool for coaches. Available at no cost to stakeholders, ‘CoachTrue’ covers a wide range of anti-doping activities and topics in order to cater to the various lifestyles and demanding schedules of coaches.
The ‘CoachTrue’ resource is also seen as an evolution of the Coach’s Tool Kit, which is used to assist stakeholders with organizing workshops for coaches. The intention of ‘CoachTrue’ is to assist anti-doping organizations, coaching associations and universities in providing anti-doping education to coaches.
The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) is the international independent organization created in 1999 to promote, co-ordinate and monitor the fight against doping in sport in all its forms. The Agency is composed and funded equally by the sports movement and governments of the world. Its key activities include scientific research, education, development of anti-doping capacities and monitoring of the World Anti-Doping Code - the document harmonizing regulations regarding anti-doping in all sports and all countries.
