The WADA ADeL platform:
WADA has recently launched its new anti-doping eLearning platform ADeL.
It offers access to all topics related to clean sport and anti-doping, including courses for athletes, coaches, doctors, administrators and anyone interested in learning more about anti-doping and protecting the values of clean sport:
THE ALPHA PROGRAM
The Athlete Learning Program about Health and Anti-Doping (ALPHA) is an e-learning tool that provides positive solutions to athletes to stay clean. The learning process includes six sessions based on the same structure: a motivational scenario is presented, placing the learner in a position where he/she has to help a teammate solve a problem. The learner is then provided with material such as a tutorial and other information/resources, and a moral reasoning activity. This allows the learner to help his/her teammates, by explaining the “how” and “why” of the solution.
THE COACHTRUE PROGRAM
The CoachTrue program is a computer-based anti-doping learning tool designed to cater the various learning styles and demanding schedules of coaches. It has different modules covering all anti-doping processes as well as tutorials, scenario-based activities and quizzes. Once coaches have completed all required elements, including a final assessment of learning (post-test), they are awarded a certificate of completion.
THE PARENTS’ GUIDE TO SUPPORT CLEAN SPORT
The Parents’ Guide to Support Clean Sport is a reference guide/booklet for parents seeking more information to ensure healthy athletic development and prevent the use of prohibited substances. This resource is relevant to parents of all levels of athletes from beginner to elite.
FOR SPORT PHYSICIANS
THE SPORT PHYSICIAN’S TOOL KIT
This is a streamlined version of the paper based Sport Physician’s Tool Kit that allows physicians and other medical personnel to take the course electronically. This kit is intended to help sport physicians develop anti-doping education programs which can be adapted and customized to suit local cultures, conditions and resources.
