Live Clean Play Clean
The Australian Olympic Committee (AOC) and the Australian Sports Anti-Doping Authority (ASADA) proudly present Live Clean Play Clean, a drug awareness program teaching Australia’s young aspiring athletes about the moral, ethical, social and physical implications of inadvertent doping and performance-enhancing drugs.
The Live Clean Play Clean presentations are tailored towards promising 13 -18 year old athletes, who have the potential to move into the elite ranks of their chosen sport.
The presentation is expertly delivered by ASADA Officers and Australian Olympians, who are committed to the fight against drugs in sport. The Olympians, who are outstanding role models, share their own personal experiences and provide support to young athletes striving to reach the pinnacle of their sport.
During sessions, attendees are educated on a range of topics including inadvertent doping and strict liability, the risks associated with supplement use, and the dangers of alcohol and illicit drugs.
Sessions are free and provided on request to Regional Academies of Sport, State Institutes of Sport, and Sports High Schools. Sessions are also conducted during the Australian Youth Olympic Festival and at Junior National Championships.
The program was launched in May 2002 and has reached over 20,000 talented young athletes.
