Montreal, 26 November 2019
We are pleased to inform Anti-Doping Organizations that beginning tomorrow, 27 November, the World Anti-Doping Agency’s (WADA’s) new Athlete Central Whereabouts app will be available for download and use from the Apple Store and Google Play.
As previously communicated, Athlete Central is WADA’s new App that will facilitate athlete compliance with Whereabouts rules under the global anti-doping program. Athlete Central will replace WADA’s current App that has been operational for a few years and required modernizing.
Athlete Central is the first module of WADA’s Anti-Doping and Administration Management System (ADAMS) ‘Next Gen’ project, which is one of WADA’s strategic priorities. The ‘Next Gen’ project intends to rebuild ADAMS in a way that better serves all athletes and anti-doping stakeholders going forward. It prioritizes mobility of ADAMS use, enhanced connectivity, reliability and performance, as well as general usability. Other modules are to follow, which WADA will communicate to you in due course.
In order to support the deployment of Athlete Central, we have prepared the following communications tools for Anti-Doping Organizations that can be leveraged via your communication channels.
- Email Signatures – you can choose your preferred one, or alternate them
- Promotional Poster – PDF version for print
- Fact Sheet
- Frequently Asked Questions
- Images for your social media channels
You can download these tools by visiting the Athlete Central page of WADA’s website.
Should you have any questions or comments, please do not hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We would also very much welcome your and your athletes’ feedback about Athlete Central.
Thank you for your support and best regards,
World Anti-Doping Agency
