Please note that every individual player must complete some anti-doping education before they participate in the 2022 Championships (teams and/or individuals) – see below for more information on this requirement.
Read the below and start planning to work with your National Anti-Doping Organisation (NADO) and the BWF to complete this requirement before 7 October 2022.
- Online Integrity Education session – Monday 20 June @ 20:00 (8:00PM) KL time
- This will provide information on anti-doping / anti-match manipulation education,.
- This will help you plan your anti-doping education sessions for junior players and support personnel (coaches / team managers) going to the BWF World Junior Championships 2022. More information in June.
Please circulate this internally.
- Anti-Doping Education – a condition of participation
Under Clause 17.2 of the BWF Anti-Doping Regulations, the BWF has selected the BWF World Junior Championships 2022 as an event where players must complete anti-doping educational activities before they participate in the event in Spain.
This means that every player must complete an anti-doping education course before they arrive in Spain for the Championships. This is a mandatory requirement in order to compete at the BWF World Junior Championships 2022.
Members must provide BWF with proof of completion of the anti-doping education training for each player going to Spain no later than Friday 7 October 2022.
- Education Options – 3 choices
There are 3 options for you to consider. The education can be face to face or an online course. If your players have completed an anti-doping course in the last 6 months, we can recognise this if it meets the minimum standards, so they do not need to repeat this again.
|Option 1||Option 2||Option 3|
|Your NADO delivers the Education Course||e-Learning Course – ADEL||Recognising a Recent Anti-Doping Course|
o Contact your NADO
o Arrange for the NADO to deliver an anti-doping education session for your Junior Squad / World Championships Team.

Have any of your junior players (who may be selected for the World Junior Championships) completed an anti-doping education course in the last 6 months?
If so, BWF may be able to recognise this and give credit for this, so no new education activity is needed before the World Junior Champs.
The course must:
– Have been delivered by a trained educator / expert.
– Covered the 11 topics in the World Anti-Doping Code Clause 18.2.
Some of your junior players may have completed the Talented Athletes Education Programme already (see the middle column).
Contact the BWF Head of Integrity to get the course / anti-doping education activity approved as meeting the requirement for competing at the World Junior Championships.

- Coaches and Team Managers – recommended course
BWF strongly recommends that coaches and team managers also complete an online anti-doping e-learning course before the BWF World Junior Championships. We recommend they complete this through ADEL – the WADA anti-doping online learning platform.
