The KSRA – ADAK work shop was held on the 9th of September 2017 at Parklands Sports Club from 2pm.

There was a total of seven players and officials who participated in the event which turned out to be extremely comprehensive. The ADAK representatives who facilitated the training were Ronny Asimba, Tim Ngugi and Charles Omondi.

The workshop was very detailed and educative and we were taken through all the aspect involved in doping. We were all able to understand the doping control process, the dangers of doping and the consequences of doping. Some of the topics discussed included:

  • ANTIDOPING RULE VIOLATION
  • THERAPUETIC USE EXEMPTION
  • PROHIBITED LIST
  • DOPING CONTROL PROCESS
  • CONSEQUENCIES OF DOPING

The expectation from the participants was that the workshop would be simply reading  the prohibited  lists in detail but at the end of  the workshop we appreciated and saw a need to mobilize and also enlighten more squash players on  the anti-doping education.

We would like to thank Parklands Sports Club for providing the venue, ADAK for the very educative workshop and all the participants who took their time to attend.
