BBNZ is obliged to assist in providing anti-doping education to our members including athletes, athlete support personnel and medical professionals.  Education is held annually and is compulsory.  Athletes must complete the scheduled education before they become eligible to take the court.  The responsibility to complete the education lies with the athlete and the Team is to remind your athletes and keep record of who has completed their education.


WBC Education will be delivered via two methods:

1.  Anti-Doping Seminars - will be held at the first tournament.  These seminars are compulsory and all must attend unless agreed with BBNZ to complete E-Learning prior to the Tournament.  Athletes that attend a seminar are not required to complete e‑learning education.

2.  Anti-Doping E-Learning - must be completed by all athletes who did not attended the anti-doping seminar held at the first tournament:
* Athletes who have never attended a seminar and will complete the anti-doping e-learning for the first time must complete Level.
*Athletes who have attended a seminar in the past or completed the anti-doping e-learning Level 1 previously, must complete Level

The web link to access Level 1 or 2 is https://e-learning.dfsnz.org.nz/login/index.php .


Drug Free Sport NZ (DFSNZ) has a range of resources to help better understand clean sport and the anti‑doping rules.  To view click here.

2018 WADA Prohibited List

The 2018 Prohibited List is now in force.  Points to note:

* there are very few changes likely to impact on athletes' use of common medicines
the associated summary of modifications document is the easiest way to check for changes

Medication, Supplements and Therapeutic Use Exemption (TUE)

Athletes are advised to check any medication and supplements before consuming.  Medications and supplements may contain substances which are on the prohibited list and are therefore prohibited in sport.  Athletes should:

* advise medical professionals that they could be drug tested
* insist that medical professionals check whether the prescribed medicine is permitted in sport
* check medications themselves to see whether they are permitted in sport
* understand and follow the TUE process if they need to take a medication that contains a prohibited substance

Athletes can check the status of medications in the following ways:

* visit DFSNZ medications link click here
* text the name of the medication or active ingredient to 4365
* phone 0800 DRUGFREE (378 437)


Athletes who compete in the Australian Basketball League (NZ based  teams only), the National Basketball League (NBL) and Women's Basketball Championship (WBC) and are taking medication that contains a prohibited substance or method, you must have a TUE in place one (1) week prior to the event start date and it should remain in place for the duration of the event (while you are still taking the medication).  TO find the steps that need to be followed if an athlete needs a TUE click here.

Drug Testing

DFSNZ may conduct confidential anti-doping testing; this means that they may turn up to a game and/or team training unannounced.  Teams must ensure that their playing and training venue is equipped with a doping control station.
