Lausanne, Switzerland, June 19, 2015 - For the FIVB it is vital that its athletes are aware of their rights and responsibilities in the field of anti-doping. The International Volleyball Federation has therefore developed an online anti-doping programme called “Play clean”, which reaches out to volleyball and beach volleyball players and team support personnel. The programme covers the new World Anti-Doping Code and contains extensive anti-doping information, as well as links to other useful resources.
With doping being fundamentally contrary to the spirit of sport, the aim of the FIVB Anti-Doping Education programme is to prevent the intentional or unintentional use of Prohibited Substances and Prohibited Methods in volleyball and beach volleyball. Preventing doping involves raising awareness of the pertinent issues, disseminating relevant and accurate information, and positively influencing beliefs, attitudes and behaviours.
