The South African Institute for Drug-Free Sport’s core focus is to tackle doping in sport in order to ensure a culture of ethics and fair play within South Africa.
We’re passionate about sport and we’re passionate about our nation’s sporting heroes setting a good example for the younger generation. Not only would we like our athletes to compete drug-free, but we also want them to be proud to say no to doping.
The Drug-Free Sport Act* gives the Institute authority and jurisdiction to carry out drug testing across all sports codes. By doing so we’re inspiring a drug-free sports culture all South Africans can be proud of.
The South African Wrestling Federation supports SAIDS and is just as passionate about our wrestling heroes setting a good example to our younger athletes.
It is important that athletes, coaches, team managers and parents understand the risks involved and the consequences of doping, not only to the athlete but to the sport of wrestling as a whole.
Please take the time to read through the 2015 SAIDS Anti Doping Rules and utalise the resources on their website (click here) to ensure that you comply.
