"Clean sport is our mission. Athletes have the right to compete in sport knowing that they, and their competitors, are clean"
England Hockey is committed to ensuring that hockey is a drug free sport. Anti-doping programmes across all sports are intended to promote ethically fair and drug-free sport, with the aim of producing athletes who are competing and winning fairly.
