SLOADO values the contribution that sport can make to health, self-development, social development and national pride when fostered within a strong ethical environment. SLOADO identifies integrity, fairness, equity and respect as values essential to meaningful success in sport. Fundamental to sport being enjoyed by all is sporting conduct and the way sport is played. SLOADO commits to playing their part, along with our partners, in ensuring that standards are set for fair play and drug-free sport and then promoted through the provision of effective education and information.
The basic principle of SLOADO’s education and information program for anti-doping shall be to protect the spirit of sport from being undermined by doping and to establish an environment which promotes and reinforces doping-free behaviour among participants, supporting athletes who wish to compete free from doping. While a comprehensive testing program plays a fundamental part as a deterrent and preventative measure against doping, SLOADO acknowledges that it has a duty to provide athletes and support personnel with the information and technical advice they need to make informed and responsible choices in compliance with the SLOADO’s anti-doping regulations.
SLOADO recognizes the important role that the home countries and regions play in providing effective anti-doping education and information and the essential role athlete support personnel play in providing ethical support and guidance to athletes.
The ITA is collaborating with HUNADO on the basis of an agreement with the Central European Anti-Doping Organization (CEADO) signed in January 2021.
