Little Athletics NSW does not believe that deliberate usage of drugs for the purpose of improving performance is a problem within Little Athletics but we, as a body, must accept that it is a possibility that cannot be ignored. The more likely situation we face is the non-deliberate usage of banned substances (e.g. ingredients in some cough medicines) by younger athletes.
Overall, it is appropriate that the broader community issues in relation to drug usage are recognised by Little Athletics NSW and it’s affiliated bodies.
