Substance Use in Sport and Health
The Substance use in Sport and Health Committee is a standing committee of the SMSCM which, provides leadership, educational and consultant services to members of the sport community to foster and maintain drug-free sport. Our specific objectives are set by, and developed through collaborations with our funding partners in this important initiative:
Sport Manitoba, Manitoba Healthy Living, Manitoba Children and youth Opportunities, and Manitoba Education. The Committee recognizes that substance use affects many on personal and professional levels. Members of the sport community use recreational drugs, performance enhancing substances, and agents designed to mask detection of banned substances. Through education programs, resources, links to experts and other organizations, and positions statements, members of the sport community can receive information on Substance Use in Sport. In so doing, protection at the personal and organizational levels will be afforded to athletes, coaches, and sport organizations.
