One of the key obligations of athletes under the World Anti-Doping Code and the ICF, AOC and the CURRENT AC Anti-Doping Policies is that up-to-date athlete contact information must be provided in the manner prescribed from time to time...
It is also a condition of nomination for selection to any Australian Canoe/Kayak Team, that all persons provide accurate and up-to-date contact information on a regular basis. The ICF also has similar requirements for any athletes participating in International events, including World Cups and World Championships.
Athletes in Australian teams/squads (Junior & Senior) and any other athlete who is on the 'Out of Competition' (OOC) Testing list is required to provide athlete contact information to AC
By providing up to date athlete contact details athletes are helping ensure an effective anti-doping program and a more level playing field for all.
There are two ways you can advise AC and ASADA of your contact information.
A Whereabouts Form must be completed on a quarterly basis and returned to AC as follows:
Flatwater & Slalom athletes
Lauren Fitzsimons, AIS Canoeing,
Marathon, Canoe Polo, Freestyle, Wildwater athletes
Michael Pfeffer, Australian Canoeing
These forms should be completed on a quarterly basis and submitted by the 20th of September, December, March, June each year. Please note that if you have not already submitted your whereabouts form for the October to December 2006 quarter please do so as a matter of urgency. The January to March quarter 2007 will then be due on December 20.

2. On line notification
You can notify AC and ASADA of your contact information through the AC website www.canoe.org.au. Once you are set up this is a simple way to stay on top of your responsibility to notify AC and ASADA of your movements for training and competition: Here is how you do it:
Whichever way you choose to provide this information, be sure to do it!
If you have moved or changed phones or email addresses also make sure that your personal contact details are up to date!
Finally, please be aware of all of your responsibilities as an athlete under anti doping policies to the various sporting organizations, in addition to AC, that you may represent or be dependent upon from time. In particular, the Australian Sports Commission, the AIS, State Institutes or Academies of Sport, the Australian Olympic Committee, the ICF, WADA and ASADA.
