The Camogie Association believe that doping is contrary to the spirit of FAIR PLAY and members have a responsibility to ensure that our sport is free of doping. Anti-doping compliance is detailed in Section 26 of the Official Guide Part 1
- To uphold and preserve the ethics of sport.
- To safeguard the physical health and mental integrity of players.
- To ensure that all competitors have an equal chance. The Irish Anti-Doping Rules are available at Sport Ireland Anti-Doping The following information highlights key areas regarding anti-doping.
The Camogie Association advises members to read the Anti-Doping Rules and to understand their responsibilities under these rules. The consequences of not adhering to Anti-Doping Rules can be severe for players and their support personnel; therefore, it is critical that any questions/concerns be clarified with either the Camogie Association or Sport Ireland. The Camogie Association run Anti-Doping workshops to facilitate the development and delivery of a quality education programme for all the major stakeholders.
