The CCES understands that many RTP athletes have recently experienced difficulty using the new ADAMS whereabouts function. In response to this issue, we are convening a focus group on Monday, February 9 in Ottawa, to enable RTP athletes to work through the process and suggest improvements to the system. The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA), the organization that develops and maintains ADAMS, will be represented at the focus group and is committed to acting on the session’s results.

If you are interested in attending the all-day focus group in Ottawa on February 9, 2009, please email Adrian Roberts at aroberts@cces.ca. Travel, meals, and accommodation expenses will be covered by the CCES.
