The use of banned performance-enhancing drugs in sports is commonly referred to as doping, particularly by the organisations that regulate sporting competitions. The reasons for the ban are mainly the health risks of performance-enhancing drugs, the equality of opportunity for athletes, and the exemplary effect of drug-free sport for the public. Anti-doping authorities state that using performance-enhancing drugs goes against the “spirit of sport”.
All competitors, prior to provincial competition, are required to have completed and submitted the Gauteng Anti Doping Form. Click here Anti Doping to download the agreement

The South African Institute for Drug-Free Sport’s core focus is to tackle doping in sport in order to ensure a culture of ethics and fair play within South Africa.
The Drug-Free Sport Act* gives the Institute authority and jurisdiction to carry out drug testing across all sports codes. By doing so we’re inspiring a drug-free sports culture all South Africans can be proud of.
SANCF and Gauteng Climbing is proud to be associated with Drug Free Sport.
