Canadian Sport Centres help high performance athletes and coaches achieve international podium results and excellence.
Here is a list of Canadian Sport Centres across the country.
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.
Squash 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. Squash Canada’s anti-doping policy reflects and supports the CADP. Squash Canada’s Policy on Doping in Sport;
While the CCES administers anti-doping for the Canadian sport community, you may also be subject to the rules of your international federation. Learn more about WSF’s anti-doping policies and procedures.
The CCES recommends that athletes take the following actions to ensure they don’t commit an inadvertent anti-doping rule violation:
- Know your rights and responsibilities as an athlete with regard to anti-doping.
- Always comply with a testing request if you are notified for doping control.
- Check all medications and products before taking them to ensure they do not contain ingredients that are banned.
- Verify your medical exemption requirements.
- Do not take supplements, but if you do, take steps to minimize your risk.
