All athletes have the right to compete in sport knowing that they, and their competitors, are clean.
The Camanachd Association believe in clean ‘Shinty’ and works in partnership with UK Anti-Doping (UKAD), and follow the UK National Anti-Doping Policy, to ensure that the integrity of Shinty is protected. The Camanachd Association recognises and acknowledges the support of UKAD. The Camanachd Association Anti-Doping Policy is covered in Bye Law 7.
The use of performance-enhancing drugs and other doping behaviour severely damages the legitimacy of sport and undermines the integrity of clean athletes.
The Camanachd Association has in place a set of anti-doping rules that all players, coaches and player support personnel must abide by.
The anti-doping rules of The Camanachd Association are the UK Anti-Doping Rules published by UK Anti-Doping (or its successor), as amended from time to time. Such rules shall take effect and be construed as the rules of The Camanachd Association

All athletes need to be aware of the principle of strict liability. This means that all athletes are solely responsible for any banned substance they use, attempt to use, or that is found in their system, regardless of how it got there and whether or not they had an intention to cheat.
It is crucial that athletes check all medications are safe to take prior to use. Medications can be checked online via Global DRO. Athletes must undertake thorough internet research of any supplement products before use – including the name of the product and the ingredients/substances listed. Information revealed as a result should be further investigated and we advise athletes to keep evidence of their search.
We all have a responsibility to report doping in sport and help keep it clean.
