Anti-Doping Rules to apply to all USFAF sanctioned events

The U.S. Federation of American Football is proud to stand by IFAF in the adoption of a strict standard related to anti-doping and keeping our sport, and our athletes, clean of banned substances.

Scope of these Anti-Doping Rules
These Anti-Doping Rules shall apply to IFAF and to each of its National Federations. They also apply to the following Athletes, Athlete Support Personnel and other Persons, each of whom is deemed, as a condition of his/her membership, accreditation and/or participation in the sport, to have agreed to be bound by these Anti-Doping Rules, and to have submitted to the authority of IFAF to enforce these Anti-Doping Rules and to the jurisdiction of the hearing panels specified in Article 8 and Article 13 to hear and determine cases and appeals brought under these Anti-Doping Rules:

  1. all Athletes and Athlete Support Personnel who are members of IFAF, or of any National Federation, or of any member or affiliate organization of any National Federation (including any clubs, teams, associations or leagues);
  2. all Athletes and Athlete Support Personnel participating in such capacity in Events, Competitions and other activities organized, convened, authorized or recognized by IFAF, or any National Federation, or any member or affiliate organization of any National Federation (including any clubs, teams, associations or leagues), wherever held;
  3. any other Athlete or Athlete Support Personnel or other Person who, by virtue of an accreditation, a licence or other contractual arrangement, or otherwise, is subject to the jurisdiction of IFAF, or of any National Federation, or of any member or affiliate organization of any National Federation (including any clubs, teams, associations or leagues), for purposes of anti-doping; To be eligible for participation in International Events, a competitor must have personally signed the Appendix 3 consent form, in the actual form approved by the IFAF. All forms from Minors must be counter-signed by their legal guardians and
  4. Athletes who are not regular members of IFAF or of one of its National Federations but who want to be eligible to compete in a particular International Event. IFAF may include such Athletes in its Registered Testing Pool so that they are required to provide information about their whereabouts for purposes of Testing under these Anti-Doping Rules for at least one month prior to the International Event in question.

 

Within the overall pool of Athletes set out above who are bound by and required to comply with these Anti-Doping Rules, the following Athletes shall be considered to be International-Level Athletes for purposes of these Anti-Doping Rules, and therefore the specific provisions in these Anti-Doping Rules applicable to International-Level Athletes (as regards Testing but also as regards TUEs, whereabouts information, results management, and appeals) shall apply to such Athletes:

a. Athletes who are part of the IFAF Registered Testing Pool and Testing Pool;
b. Athletes who were part of the National Teams that have finished in the top three (3) in any IFAF World Championships.
