The athletes are the heart and soul of IFMA’s mission and vision.
IFMA’s main priority is the protection of the clean athletes and to support them equally on and off the field of play, which revolves around the athlete. IFMA has a strong athletes commission, and its Chair has a permanent seat on the IFMA Executive Committee, ensuring true athlete representation at the decision making level of the organisation.
The safety and wellbeing of all athletes are paramount to IFMA. We will continue to make a unified effort to keep our athletes safe, contribute to their wellbeing and safeguard their rights.
One of the most important and easiest things that the athletes can do is to be proactive in protecting their own health and sporting career by getting well educated in anti-doping matters. This webinar will highlight how WADA and Anti-Doping Organisations are working hard to ensure that education is available and importantly, becomes the first experience that athletes have as part of the anti-doping system.
All athletes and individuals in relevant roles are invited to this important anti-doping education webinar:
