Registered Testing Pool

In accordance with the World Anti-Doping Code and its International Standards published by the World Anti-Doping Agency, as well as with the World Archery Anti-Doping Rules, World Archery identifies each year the athletes to be included in the Registered Testing Pool (RTP) for the purpose of its anti-doping testing programme. RTP Athletes are subject to specific requirements.

The athletes included are informed personally and through ADAMS. All Anti-Doping Organisations that require information related to the RTP can obtain it through ADAMS or by contacting World Archery at wa.dopingfree@sportaccord.com.

Coach TrueCoachTrue

World Archery strongly encourages all coaches to use the Coach True learning tool to assess and certify their knowledge in regards to anti-doping matters. This award-winning interactive tool is specifically designed for coaches, places you in real-life situations and delivers a certificate if you pass the final test. National Federations can use it freely, for example to monitor the knowledge of their coaches.

In order to cater to the various learning styles and demanding schedules of coaches, WADA has created computer-based anti-doping learning tool called CoachTrue.

The following features are included in the elite-level module of CoachTrue for coaches of elite-level athletes:

  • Pre-Test: Allows coaches to identify current knowledge base
  • Tutorials: A series of presentations with voice-overs that provide essential information on the following topics:
  1. Health consequences of doping
  2. Accountability
  3. Results management
  4. Therapeutic use exemptions
  5. Whereabouts
  6. Decision making
  • Scenario-Based Activities: Practical application of acquired knowledge to possible real-life scenarios.
  • Who Wants to Play True: A fun way for coaches to test their knowledge of anti-doping issues.
  • Post-Test & Certification: Once coaches have completed all required elements, including a final assessment of learning (post-test), they are awarded a certificate of completion.

Therapeutic Use Exemptions

What is a TUE and how do I apply for it?

Athletes may have illnesses or conditions that require them to take particular medications.

If the medication an athlete is required to take to treat an illness or condition happens to fall under the Prohibited List, a Therapeutic Use Exemption (TUE) may give that athlete the authorisation to take the needed medicine.

The purpose of the International Standard for Therapeutic Use Exemptions (ISTUE) is to ensure that the process of granting TUEs is harmonised across sports and countries.

For certain medical conditions (for example, asthma, ADHD, etc.) WADA has developed the Guidelines, which should be followed when applying for a TUE. Please verify if there are Guidelines for your medical condition.

Using the TUE application form and according to the Article 4.4 of the International Standard for Therapeutic Use Exemptions (ISTUE), the procedure for applying for a TUE is the following:

  • An athlete who is not an International-Level Athlete should apply to his or her National Anti-Doping Organisation for a TUE.
  • An athlete who is an International-Level Athlete should apply to his or her International Federation.

In World Archery, as described in the scope of the World Archery Anti-Doping Rules, the following athletes are considered to be International and therefore should apply for a TUE to World Archery:

  • Athletes who are part of the World Archery Registered Testing Pool.
  • Athletes who participate in selected World Archery International Events. Please refer to the Calendar, which also describes where the athletes should address their TUE requests.

The following athletes will be considered as National and therefore will need to address their TUE request directly to NADO:

  • Athletes who compete in sport at the national level, as defined by each National Anti-Doping Organisation, consistent with the International Standard for Testing and Investigations.

However, in the situation when the athlete was granted a TUE on the National level by his/her NADO and then becomes an International Level athlete (as per the description above), the recognition process of his/her National TUE on the International Level is possible.

Thus, according to the article 4.4.2.1 of the World Archery Anti-Doping Provisions, if the athlete already has a TUE granted by his/her National Anti-Doping Organisation, that TUE is automatically valid for international-level Competition provided that such TUE decision has been reported in accordance with Article 5.4 of the ISTUE and is not for beta-blockers. However, for beta-blockers the athlete must apply to World Archery to recognise that TUE, in accordance with Article 7 of the ISTUE.
