The National Center for Drug Free Sport, Inc.® was founded in 1999 by Frank Uryasz, previously director of sports sciences for the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA). Our executive staff has more than 50 years of cumulative, professional experience in sports drug testing.
Drug Free SportÔ was created because there was no national entity that focused on the specific needs of sports organizations. Many organizations tried to conduct their own drug testing, using inappropriate workplace models. Moreover, sports organizations needed specific, student-athlete targeted testing, as well as independent program management.
In 2001, Drug Free Sport developed the Dietary Supplement Resource Exchange Center (REC) as a confidential hot-line and Web site to answer athletes' questions about dietary supplements and banned substances. Subscribers include the NCAA, the National Football League, and the International All-Around Weightlifting Association.
Drug Free Sport has developed a number of programs to help institutions evaluate and implement effective policies. Our Speakers Bureau provides expert advice, pertaining to athlete safety and fair game, to student-athletes, athletics directors and athletic trainers. – less – More from ZoomInfo »
