ASADA Anti-Doping

Sport Climbing and Anti-Doping

As an Olympic Sport, Sport Climbing is now subject to anti doping controls, managed by ASADA in Australia. Anti-doping plays an important part in keeping competitors safe and competitions fair.  Sports Climbing Australia is working with the Australian Sports Anti-Doping Agency (ASADA) to keep the sport clean. Drug testing may take place at any national competition and members of the Australian Team are also subject to random testing in and out of the competition season.  There are many resources available on the ASADA website

ASADA eLearning

All Open A competitors and Youth competitors aged 14 years and over should complete the Level 1 anti-doping course. All other competitors are recommended to take a look at the course so they can learn the basics of anti-doping, including how to check substances and what the doping control process looks like. For more information, visit the ASADA Education page.


ASADA confidential tip-off line

From just a single tip-off by a member of the public, ASADA can start gathering intelligence on an athlete or support person. Tip-offs can be submitted through a secure online form, or by calling the ASADA hotline. These pieces of information can be as simple as seeing something suspicious, or overhearing people talk about doping.

Doping can be reported confidentially via the ASADA website, or by calling 13 000 ASADA (13 000 27232).


ASADA testing

Sample collection (also known as doping control or drug testing) is an essential part of promoting and protecting doping-free sport. It is the process to detect and/or deter the use of a prohibited substance, or prohibited method, by an athlete.
