ADeL currently includes the following modules:
This online program gives athletes information about the dangers of doping and the importance of anti-doping controls and promotes positive attitudes to avoiding doping. The tool shifts the focus from what athletes are not allowed to do, to offering solutions for clean progression in sport.
CoachTrue provides anti-doping education for coaches of elite and recreational-level athletes. It has different modules covering all anti-doping processes as well as tutorials, scenario-based activities and quizzes.

In addition to covering anti-doping modules specific to sports physicians, there are also three modules covering major games topics, done in collaboration with the IOC. The material contained in the Sport Physician’s Tool Kit (SPTK) is intended to help sport physicians develop anti-doping education programs that can be adapted and customized to suit local cultures, conditions and resources.

OTHER RESOURCES FOR ATHLETES
The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) provides useful and important tools for raising athlete awareness. It is important for athletes to remember that they are responsible for everything they put into their bodies and for all substances they use. Athletes must be aware and vigilant in their choices, and it is the responsibility of the National Federations and International Federation to make sure they have access to the knowledge resources they need.
Here we provide some useful educational tools translated into various languages:

WHEREABOUTS SUBMISSION FOR RTP ATHLETES
For IFMA’s Registered Testing Pool (RTP) athletes only, those who have been contacted directly via email or their respective National Federations.
RTP athletes must download Athlete Central, WADA’s new App that facilitates athlete compliance with Whereabouts rules under the global anti-doping program.
It is available for use and download from the Apple Store and Google Play. Athlete Central, which is powered by WADA’s Anti-Doping Administration & Management System (ADAMS), replaces WADA’s current App that has been operational for a few years and required modernizing.
Whereabouts rules, which are a key component of global sport’s crucial out-of-competition testing programs, are part of the International Standard for Testing and Investigations. The rules require a limited number of top-level athletes within a Registered Testing Pool (RTP) to provide their Anti-Doping Organization (ADO) with details of where they can be found for one hour every day.
