Abstract

Despite widespread recognition that prevention, rather than detection, remains the best strategy for eliminating banned performance enhancing drug (PED) use in sport, anti-doping research has typically only studied elite adult athletes.

This paper examines the behaviours and attitudes of a cohort of 702 elite development athletes (12-17 years of age) with regard to PEDs. It describes the baseline (year 1) data from an ongoing three year longitudinal-sequential study. The broad aim of the research is to identify the factors (namely, morality and coaching environment) that may either foster or inhibit PED use, including both attitudes and actual doping behaviours. Surveys were distributed to secondary school athletes (defined as those competing at state level and above) through three large schools in Queensland, Australia.
