NCAA[R] Drug-Testing Program, 1999-2000.
Halpin, Ty, Ed.
The drug testing program supports NCAA's goal to protect the health and safety of student-athletes competing for their institutions, while reaffirming the organization's commitment to fair and equitable competition. Proposal Nos. 30 and 52-54 provide a program for the NCAA's members to ensure that no one athlete has a chemically-induced advantage or is pressured to use chemical substances. The program involves urine collection on specific occasions and laboratory analyses for substances on a list of banned drugs including stimulants, anabolic agents such as steroids, diuretics, illegal drugs, or peptide hormones. Consent forms must be signed by student athletes if they wish to participate in NCAA programs. (JM)
