To that end, Sport Integrity Australia provides a range of education resources for everyone who participates in sport, from grassroots to elite level athletes, their parents, teachers, coaches and support personnel. 

These include bespoke eLearning courses, targeted face to face sessions, school resources and innovative technologies.

    Anti-Doping mobile app

    The Clean Sport App has been designed as a one-stop shop for anti-doping, designed with athletes in mind.  

    The App allows users to check medications, a supplement checker tool, information about Therapeutic Use Exemptions along with access to a report doping form. The App gives users the opportunity to provide feedback to Sport Integrity Australia and further information on eLearning modules, whereabouts and testing information. 

    Health Effects of Doping

    Explore the short and long term health effects of taking performance enhancing substances with the Health Effects of Doping Augmented Reality App.  

    Using Augmented Reality, users create their own athlete avatar, who experiences all the negative health effects of doping right before their very eyes.  

    By using the phone’s camera, users can peer inside their avatar to see how PIEDs change their organs and nervous system.

    Doping Control Virtual Reality

    Experience your very first doping control experience in the comfort of your own home, with our web based, virtual reality (VR) experience. 

    This doping control experience exposes you to the step by step process of proving a urine sample via doping control. In this experience you will also be provided with information on your rights and responsibilities as an athlete.

    Face to Face Presentations

    Sport Integrity Australia employs Clean Sport Educators to provide face to face education sessions for sporting groups around the country. All presenters are either current or former elite athletes and provide engaging and interactive presentations that are tailored to the needs of the group and sport.

    Depending upon the risk of doping in your sport, you may be able to access Government funded and/or user pays sessions. Costs for user pay face to face sessions will be published in the near future.  

    For sports who wish to develop in-house capacity to deliver integrity education sessions to their sport or club, contact us to discuss training opportunities. 

    School Program

    Integrity in sport topics, including anti-doping, match-fixing and illicit drugs in sport, are important concepts for our future elite athletes, coaches and support personnel to understand, and what better place to start than when they are young and eager to learn.

    Sport Integrity Australia has developed a large range of engaging, cutting edge and most importantly, free resources for use within schools and we are here to support teachers both in and out of the classroom. 

    Resources include lesson guides on anti-doping and sports integrity issues which are relevant for all secondary students within the Health and Physical Education subject strands; various award-winning online courses; innovative mobile apps; posters; electronic advertisements; and numerous assessment materials.

    Check out our new Clean Sport Secondary Schools Resource Kit with details on all Curriculum Links to the various state and territory curriculums and suggested ways that the resources may be used in your classroom and with your elite pathway athletes. 

    Additionally, in some instances we are able to provide free face-to-face school visits which cover important ‘food first’ nutrition messaging, the risks of supplements, and the dangers of Performance and Image Enhancing Drug use, which are presented by our team of Clean Sport Educators.

    Furthermore, our education staff are available for free teacher professional development sessions within your school to help staff better understand the content of our education material, online learning tools and curriculum aligned lesson plans. We have found that these sessions are also a great way to workshop ideas on lesson delivery and we fully encourage teacher input on current and possible future teaching resource material.

    In order to promote clean, fair, safe sport, Sport Integrity Australia occasionally runs outreach booths at major sporting events.
