In conjunction with ASADA, DanceSport Australia has revised its existing rules, and this revision is contained in the formal DSA policy – adopted by DSA National Council on 11th December, 2014 and identified as CR002.1 DanceSport Australia Anti-Doping Policy which is available by accessing the link below, and via this web site at the tabs “About DanceSport”, then “Other Competition Rules” and then “Anti-Doping Policy (Effective 1st January, 2015)”.
Important Advice to all DSA Members - Athletes and Athlete Support Personnel -
Also importantly, Athletes and Athlete Support Personnel must –
- take responsibility, in the context of anti-doping, for what they ingest and use.
- inform medical personnel of their obligation not to Use Prohibited Substances and Prohibited Methods and to take responsibility to makesure that any medical treatment received does not violate this Anti-Doping Policy.
Should there be any questions, I would be very pleased to respond.
