As one of the most influential people in an athlete’s life, a coach is in a unique position to make memorable impressions upon athletes, and provide support in managing their anti-doping responsibilities. USADA is arming all National Team coaches with anti-doping knowledge. Created with coaches in mind, USADA developed an online education tutorial, Coach's Advantage™.
The United States Olympic Committee (USOC) National Anti-Doping Policies require 'every coach of a national team to complete the USOC-approved USADA online tutorial.'
Coach's Advantage™ is comprehensive, well-organized, fully automated, and comprised of four video lessons. Tutorials cover the WADA Prohibited List, sample collection, therapeutic use exemptions (TUEs), and whereabouts responsibilities. Coaches can receive the Coach's Advantage™ certificate by completing all video lessons and achieving 100% on the final quiz.
