The ECB, in conjunction with the PCA and UKAD, is committed to developing and furthering the provision of anti-doping education to players and support staff at international, First Class, Kia Super League and Academy level along with other points on the Performance Pathway.
As well as the delivery of direct education sessions and provision of resources, nominated key staff will be provided information and guidance so that they themselves can advise players within their team on current anti-doping policy and rules in an engaging fashion.
The UKAD Learning Zone provides useful information on anti-doping education. The online UKAD Anti-Doping Advisor course is a great entry point for anyone wanting to learn more about anti-doping but may prove particularlyuseful to support staff that provide occasional, informal advice to athletes on anti-doping.
There are a number of resources available to cricketers to help them meet their anti-doping requirements. The ECB has a number of specific advice cards (Senior, Academy, Parent, Illicit Drugs) designed to be kept in a kit bag for referral or to serve as a reminder. UKAD have also developed a toolkit app which is a fantastic resource that can be carried with you at all times and accessed when you are on the move.
