Anti-Doping Policy

by Lyn Robinson


Anti-doping is an important part of all National Governing Body’s responsibility. British Fencing take a clear lead on many aspects, however, as the NGB here in Wales, there are some crucial actions that we ne need to take to ensure that all Welsh Fencers are aware of the responsibilities on them, and where information and support can be accessed.

WF have engaged with UKAD and we are continuing to work closely with our UK NGB, British Fencing on the requirements of the UKAD Assurance Framework.
