Our fifth webinar of 2022 focuses on Parents and Guardians, and their role in Clean Sport.
Parents and guardians of young athletes have many roles. As well as being their child’s number one fan, they are their taxi driver, nutritionist, psychologist. Alongside this, parents and guardians also have an important role in their child’s development as a clean athlete. This requires an understanding of anti-doping rules, and just as importantly, an ability to positively influence their child’s values and behaviours, which in turn can prevent doping.
We invite parents, guardians, all athletes, and others who work with young athletes, to tune in as our expert panellists discuss this important topic.
Joining us are Dr Lubna Sibtain, whose daughter was the first female swimmer and youngest female Olympian from Pakistan, and Jodi Brown, a former international netball player, parent, and member of Drug Free Sport New Zealand’s Education Team. They will share their experiences and provide practical tips on how parents and guardians can learn about, and take an active role in clean sport.
As always, we are pleased to deliver these webinars in English with simultaneous translation to four additional languages – Arabic (العربي), Spanish (español), French (français) and Russian (русский).
