General Drug Policy

Western Australian Flying Disc Association (WAFDA) Inc
General Drug Policy


1. Purpose

1.1 This document provides members with information on the WAFDA’s stance on drug use at WAFDA sanctioned events.

2. Scope

2.1 The use of illegal drugs and the abuse of prescription medication, over the counter drugs and alcohol are prohibited for participants of WAFDA sanctioned events.  Substance abuse can lead to on-field injuries, alienation of fans and sponsors plus personal hardship.
2.2 The WAFDA has taken a stance of ‘Zero Tolerance’ to substance abuse at all its sanctioned events.

3. Suspected Substance Abuse

3.1 Players suspected of substance abuse during WAFDA events will be asked to cease participation immediately.
3.2 For a player to be suspected of substance abuse there has to be reasonable cause.
3.3 Evidence of substance abuse has to be observed by two (2) WAFDA Committee Members and one (1) player before action is taken.
3.4 The onus is on the suspected player to prove that they are not at fault.  This can be done at the event so long as two (2) Executive and one (1) General Committee Member are present, or as an appeal to the full WAFDA Committee at a later date.
