FITEQ calls on teqball family to attend latest ITA webinar

FITEQ encourages all teqball athletes and their entourages to attend the International Testing Agency’s (ITA) fifth webinar of the year on Tuesday 31 May (14:00-15:00 CET), which is focused on “Parents and Guardians, and their role in Clean Sport.”

FITEQ has been a partner of the ITA since 2020, and is grateful for the role the organisation has played in helping ensure teqball remains a clean sport.

As the ITA notes, “Parents and guardians of young athletes have many roles. As well as being their child’s number one fan, they are their taxi driver, nutritionist, psychologist. Alongside this, parents and guardians also have an important role in their child’s development as a clean athlete. This requires an understanding of anti-doping rules, and just as importantly, an ability to positively influence their child’s values and behaviour, which in turn can prevent doping.”

During the webinar, Dr Lubna Sibtain, whose daughter was the first female swimmer and youngest female Olympian from Pakistan, and Jodi Brown, a former international netball player, parent, and member of Drug Free Sport New Zealand’s Education Team will share their experiences and provide practical tips on how parents and guardians can learn about, and take an active role in clean sport.

The webinar will be delivered in English with simultaneous translation to four additional languages – Arabic, Spanish, French and Russian. All the key details can be found below:
