Athletes Requiring Medication
Athletes who require a medication found on the current Prohibited Drug List will need to apply for permission to compete while taking the medication called a Therapeutic Drug Use Exemption or (TUE). We will use the medications listed in the athlete’s eligibility application to determine if the athlete will need to apply for a TUE.
