Some examples of unusual banned substances include: * Day Nurse * Sudafed * Ginseng * Caffeine If there are any queries into the substances allowed then teams can contact: Sports Council Anti Doping Directorate- 020 7380 8033 SO WHAT IS SAFE?????? All antibiotics, all oral contraceptives, all preparations for the skin are all legal and safe to use. PAINRELIEF- Aspirin, Paracetamol, Codine, Dihydrocodeine, Dextropoxyphene, all non-steroidal anti inflammatory drugs such as Ibuprofen and Voltarol.

When researching information on blood doping in netball there were no known issues however with an increase in the sport in many European and worldwide countries it is a possibility that this may occur. Other sport's where this has occurred is in cycling, skiing, dog racing and swimming. Finance Much of the finance received is through Sport England or other organised governing providers which are superior to the individual sporting governing bodies. However clubs finance is received through sponsorship, this can be a private sponsored or a national sponsor such as 'mitre'. It is also collected off players as match fees and training fees. AENA will receive money of specific amounts for projects such as a netball courts or a training program or possible tournament from the FENA however these donations will be in good mind stead as they will be such that that England would be holding the European netball cup or likewise. 1 Kimberley Webb PE Coursework 1 06/12/2004 ...read more.
