Participation within Canadian Collegiate Athletic Association (CCAA) is a privilege that requires full compliance with CCAA regulations, including CCAA Eligibility, Code of Ethics and Drug Education & Control Regulations. Student-athletes are responsible for obtaining these regulations from their coaches and/or Athletic Director and to inquire how their respective circumstance relates to each.
ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENTS & CODE OF ETHIC EXPECTATIONS OF STUDENT-ATHLETES:
It is critical that student-athletes familiarize themselves with the CCAA Policies and Procedures entitled "Eligibility" and “Code of Ethics”. Student-athletes are responsible for obtaining these rules from their coaches and/or Athletic Director and to inquire how their respective circumstance relates to CCAA eligibility requirements and code of ethic expectations. This is important, as student-athletes need to be aware that those who participate in CCAA competition and are found to be in violation of these policies, among other sanctions, forfeit their eligibility for the remainder of the current competitive year and may be suspended in the subsequent year of eligibility.
CANADIAN ANTI-DOPING PROGRAM:
The Canadian Collegiate Athletic Association (CCAA) is unequivocally opposed to the use of prohibited substances or prohibited methods that enhance sporting performance, risk health and or are contrary to the spirit of sport. As such, the CCAA has adopted the Canadian Anti-Doping Program (CADP). The latest version of the CADP can be accessed here:
The CCAA Drug Education and Doping Control Program will be conducted in cooperation with the Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport (CCES) in accordance with the CADP. As a CCAA Student-Athlete you are subject to the CADP and accordingly shall be bound by all the anti-doping rules and responsibilities contained in the CADP. You agree to undertake education regarding the anti-doping rules and violations contained in the CADP.
