FISU-WADA partnership project
Engaging university students is the perfect way to promote drug-free sport values to future sport leaders and professionals. The FISU-WADA partnership project, which strives to create a drug-free environment to protect athletes and youth, is part of the Legacy Program for the 2015 Universiade, which took place in Gwangju, Republic of Korea, on 3-14 July 2015.
The program objectives include:
- Develop an integrated e-textbook and teaching material to raise the social awareness of the fight against doping in sport among first year university students
- Educate future practitioners, athletes, coaches and all leaders of sport, on the dangers of doping in sport and their role in fighting doping in sport
- Support universities in integrating anti-doping in different areas of study, by identifying topics to be covered and providing support material for addressing in the classroom
The Anti-Doping Textbook and teaching material have been designed to be a comprehensive overview of doping in sport and issues related to this. Their target audience is those university students who will one day be involved in sport in many different capacities and disciplines. This could range from working with elite athletes to being involved at grass roots level or in as diverse profession as sports law to sports medicine.
The textbook is available in English, French, Korean, Russian and Spanish. It is accessible free of charge, along with the support material for instructors, through the FISU-WADA Anti-Doping Learning Hub. A project information brochure is also available.
