Australian Rules Football Scotland
All athletes have the right to compete in sport knowing that they, and their competitors, are clean. AFL Scotland believes in clean ‘Footy’ and works in partnership with UK Anti-Doping (UKAD) to ensure that the integrity of our Footy is protected.
The use of performance-enhancing drugs and other doping behaviour severely damages the legitimacy of sport and undermines the integrity of clean athletes.
AFL Scotland has in place a set of anti-doping rules that all athletes, coaches and athlete support personnel must abide by. The anti-doping rules for Scottish Footy are consistent with the World Anti-Doping Code (2015 Code), which governs anti-doping internationally.
You can find the following Anti-Doping rules below – These rules came into effect on 1st January 2015:

AFL Scotland adoption of the UK Anti-Doping Rules here.
The anti-doping rules of Scottish Footy are the UK Anti-Doping Rules published by UK Anti-Doping (or its successor), as amended from time to time. Such rules shall take effect and be construed as the rules of Scottish Footy
If you are a member of Scottish Footy then the anti-doping rules applies to you, regardless of what level you participate at.
