POLICIES

Scottish Hockey's Board of Directors is charged with setting and reviewing our policies. Below, you will find information on our Ethics Manual, and Equity and Anti-Doping Policies.

Ethics Manual & Discipline Code

Scottish Hockey is committed to organising the sport of hockey within a strict ethical framework.

The values that the Scottish Hockey holds can be stated as:

  • A sport that values "fair play"
  • Asport that is free from doping
  • A sport that provides a safe environment for young and vulnerable people
  • An equitable sport where everyone can participate to the best of their abilities whether that is as a player, coach, umpire, official or other volunteer.

To ensure these values are upheld we organise our activities with regards to a number of codes and policies, as found in the Scottish Hockey Ethics Manual.

The Discipline code relating to on field discipline and relating forms can be found here.

Anti-Doping Policies

Scottish Hockey's Anti-Doping Rules comply with the WADA, UK Anti-Doping and FIH Regulations.

All athletes have the right to compete in sport knowing that they, and their competitors, are clean.

We Scottish Hockey believe in clean ‘hockey’ and work in partnership with UK Anti-Doping (UKAD) and our International Federation to ensure that the integrity of our sport hockey is protected.

The use of performance-enhancing drugs and other doping behaviour severely damages the legitimacy of sport and undermines the integrity of clean athletes.

Scottish Hockey has in place a set of anti-doping rules that all athletes, coaches and athlete support personnel must abide by. The anti-doping rules for Scottish Hockey are consistent with the World Anti-Doping Code (2015 Code), which governs anti-doping internationally.

The anti-doping rules of Scottish Hockey are the UK Anti-Doping Rules published by UK Anti-Doping (or its successor), as amended from time to time. Such rules shall take effect and be construed as the rules of Scottish Hockey.

If you are a member of Scottish Hockey then the anti-doping rules apply to you, regardless of what level you participate at.

These rules are effective as of 31 December 2014.

Please download the Anti-Doping Rules for further information.

Please see new rules that will be implemented in 2015 here.
