iBoxClean: Anti-doping education & awareness programme.

IABA is proud to support clean sport with the release of the iBoxClean programme – this is designed to raise awareness of anti-doping in our sport, and provide learning and education opportunities for boxers, coaches, club support staff and parent/guardians.

Doping is contrary to the spirit of our sport. Every boxer, coach, club administrator, bout official, elected official, clubs and unit has a responsibility to ensure Boxing is free of doping.  Members are bound by this policy, and by the provisions of Rule 7.5 of IABA’s Rulebook

There are 11 anti-doping rule violations, of which almost half also apply to coaches, so it is vital that coaches go on the anti-doping learning journey with their boxers. More information on Anti-Doping regulations is available through Sport Ireland, here, and through WADA, here
