Safe Rugby League Education and Resources

IRL affirms the belief of WADA & UNESCO that education is a central theme of any programme designed to remove doping from sports. A successful program of anti-doping worldwide can only function with adequate education of players and the whole sporting community. The IRL firmly believes that players and their support system should be well aware of all rights, obligations, anti-doping precautions, methods, doping control systems and prohibitive substances. It also reiterates that players should be aware of consequences of doping not just in terms of doping code violations and disciplinary measures thereof, but also about the health hazards caused due to doping substances.

The IRL with help of WADA and other anti-doping agencies will raise awareness about anti-doping in the mountaineering community. IRL and its member associations are committed to provide the ideal environment for ‘fair play’ and educate every member of the mountaineering community about the harm from doping to the sport and the individual(s) concerned.

In 2020, the IRL launched its anti-doping online education programme.

All players competing in the upcoming IRL season are invited to take (and pass) the test and obtain a certificate.

Although this education is only intended for IRL licensed players, the IRL hopes it can be useful to anyone interested in finding more information about SafeRugbyLeague.
