Anti-Doping

Athletes are reminded that they may be tested at any Rowing Ireland event during the year as part of the Irish Sports Council National Testing Programme.

The basic principle of Rowing Ireland’s information and education programme for anti-doping shall be to protect the spirit of rowing from being undermined by doping and to establish an environment which influences doping-free behaviour among participants.
While a comprehensive testing programme plays a fundamental part as a deterrent and preventative measure against doping, Rowing Ireland acknowledges that it has a duty to provide clubs and athletes with the information and technical advice they need to make informed and responsible choices in compliance with the Rowing Ireland’s anti-doping regulations.
