The IFF is committed to clean sport and the IFF Anti-Doping Programme includes prevention strategies including detection-deterrence methods such as testing and investigations, but also information and education.
The World Anti-Doping Code (the “Code”) is the fundamental and universal document upon which the World Anti-Doping Programme is based. The purpose of the Code is to advance the anti-doping effort through universal harmonisation of core anti-doping elements. IFF signed the World Anti-Doping Code in 2003. At the IFF Central Board meeting held on October 14th 2014 IFF accepted the revised (2015) World Anti-Doping Code. The IFF Anti-Doping Rules 2015 are adopted and implemented in accordance with IFF’s responsibilities under the Code.
The IFF also focuses on medical issues in floorball and the IFF Medical Committee produces medical documents for the floorball community such as concussion guidelines. In addition, the IFF collects injury data from the major IFF Events. The aim is to define injury risks not only by collecting important epidemiological information, but also by gaining direction for injury prevention and comparing injury statistics in floorball with other sports.
