Message from WAKO President

TO ALL WAKO MEMBERS

“One thing this pandemic has shown me is that, life is not meant to follow a set pattern.
Every moment has a multitude of adaptions.
We must as a sport and as a society adapt.
We must make informed well-constructed decisions.
Sometimes our decisions may take us on an unknown path.
However, we must believe in ourselves and go take that initial step forward.
It is inspiring and exciting to do what we love but greater, due to the fact we do so with a great team, the WAKO team, the WAKO family.
The joy of doing what we love fuels all of us with a fuller sense of fulfilment in life, in sport and in our communities in which we live in.
Stay connected, stay strong, stay healthy, we will prevail.”

Roy Baker
WAKO President

WADA's 2021 Code Implementation Support Program 'goes live'

Montreal, 4 May 2020

Dear Colleagues,
 
logo en2xFollowing on from the World Anti-Doping Agency's (WADA's) communication of 23 April, WADA is pleased to announce that its Code Implementation Support Program (CISP) is now officially 'live'.
 
WADA developed the CISP to help World Anti-Doping Code (Code) Signatories prepare for implementation of the 2021 Code and International Standards (Standards) that come into effect on 1 January 2021.
 
CISP Resources available on ADeL
 
As of today, the following types of CISP resources are available via the Agency's Anti-Doping eLearning platform (ADeL):

  • Factsheets
  • Video tutorials
  • Checklists
  • Presentations; and
  • Pre-recorded webinars

These resources are focused on understanding the main changes and what Signatories can do to implement the 2021 Code and Standards. To start with, resources will be offered in English with French and Spanish being made available in the coming months.
 
When visiting ADeL, which requires registration, Signatories can navigate via their role or via the Code or Standard and resources can be downloaded or shared with colleagues.
 
Our video below provides insight into what is available and how to access the resources when visiting ADeL.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DLBuWDY0QiM

WADA Director of Education, Amanda Hudson, said: "WADA is delighted to officially launch the Code Implementation Support Program to assist Signatories in implementing the 2021 Code and Standards."
 
"Our Program, led by the Education Department, was developed by an internal multi-disciplinary project team including representatives from WADA's Regional Offices. Collectively, the CISP project team has created a range of new resources for Signatories that we encourage anti-doping personnel to view and use. Beyond this, WADA, through this program, will continue to develop and provide information and resources for Signatories on ADeL. Our aim is to help Signatories implement the Code and Standards through material that is easy to understand and in an accessible format."
 
Live Webinar Series
 
In addition to the CISP resources that are available on ADeL as of today, to further assist Signatories, WADA will hold a series of live webinars, hosted by WADA personnel and external experts, to support Code/Standard implementation efforts for targeted audiences and/or regions. The Agency will also host live webinars in place of some sessions that would have otherwise been delivered during the Agency's Annual Symposium, which was due to be held in March 2020 but was cancelled due to COVID-19. These will include in particular a webinar on the Athletes' Anti-Doping Rights Act; and, another that provides an update regarding the redevelopment of the Anti-Doping Administration and Management System (ADAMS).
 
Over the coming days, WADA will communicate its webinar schedule for May, prompting stakeholders to register and participate. Thereafter, the Agency will publish its schedule on a monthly basis.
 
Next steps in the CISP
 
The CISP team will now turn its attention to reviewing all existing WADA resources that are available for Signatories, ensuring that they are updated in line with the 2021 Code and Standards; after which, they will be made available via ADeL. This supports WADA's aim of making ADeL the central educational resource center for Signatories – creating a 'go to' place for help and information.
 
Should you have any questions regarding the above, or specific questions or feedback related to the CISP, please contact WADA at: .
 
Thank you and best regards,
