Sport is about competing and performing to the best of your ability – the pursuit of human and sporting excellence.

Taking prohibited substances or using prohibited methods is cheating, and can be very damaging to an athlete’s health. Doping undermines the fundamental spirit of sport and severely damages the integrity, image, and value of sport.

Racquetball BC is committed to clean sport in Canada and through our association with Racquetball Canada, supports Anti-Doping initiatives though the adoption of the Canadian Anti-Doping Program and by providing up to date information for those involved in our sport.

Anti-Doping Training

True Sport Clean, the CCES’ comprehensive e-learning course, is offered to Racquetball Canada national team athletes and in some cases, provincial sport organization athletes. The course addresses ethical sport, athlete rights and responsibilities, supplements, substances and methods on the Prohibited List, sample collection procedures, and more.

If athletes have questions about anti-doping education and True Sport Clean or if you can access e-learning courses contact Racquetball Canada’s High Performance Director.

Canadian Anti-Doping Program

The Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport (CCES) is the custodian of the Canadian Anti-Doping Program (CADP), the set of rules that govern anti-doping in Canada. The CADP consists of several components such as in- and out-of-competition testing, education, medical exemptions, and the consequences of doping violations. The CADP is compliant with the World Anti-Doping Code and all international standards.

Racquetball Canada has adopted the CADP which means that you can be confident that you are part of a world-class anti-doping program that is designed to protect athletes’ rights and ensure a level playing field.

As a member of Racquetball BC and Racquetball Canada, the CADP applies to you! It is important to know that by participating in activities sanctioned by Racquetball BC, you may be selected for doping control. Read our Anti-Doping policy and Code of Conduct and visit the CCES website for more information and great resources.

Protecting clean and fair sport is a collective responsibility. The CCES Integrity Hotline provides Canadians with a secure and anonymous means to report suspected doping and competition manipulation, both of which are major threats to good sport.
