Doping in sport is both unhealthy to the individual and contrary to the law and ethics of sport. Sport NZ fully supports the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO)/the United Nations Office of Drugs and Crime (UNODC), the International Olympic Committee (IOC), World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) and Drug Free Sport New Zealand (DFSNZ) against the use of banned substances and methods used to gain an unfair advantage.
Sport should always be a fair contest. Around the world, sport is increasingly being targeted by criminals seeking to make money through match-fixing and other illegal and unethical gambling activities. This infiltration damages the reputation of sport and undermines its value.
Corruption has no place in New Zealand society and organisations have a duty to ensure they are fair and transparent in their day to day dealings and maintain adequate records and compliance with legislation. Corruption in any form has the potential to affect the integrity, growth, development and reputation of the New Zealand sport and active recreation system.

Every person involved in play, active recreation and sport has the right to be treated with respect and fairness, and to be safe and protected from abuse. Providers have a responsibility to ensure that everyone involved in their activities is aware of their legal and ethical rights and responsibilities.
Tamariki and rangatahi have the right to participate in in an environment that is safe, supportive and protective, and where they are encouraged to remain active, enjoy what they are doing and be free from physical and emotional harm. This will increase the chances of instilling a lifelong love of participation and remaining active.
Every person has the right to participate in play, active recreation and sport within a welcoming and inclusive environment, and to be treated with respect, empathy and positive regard.
