A NOTE ABOUT DIETARY SUPPLEMENTS
The environment for today’s student-athlete enables easy access to products, which are available over-the-counter at
retail outlets and through the internet, but contain substances banned by the NCAA. Many student-athletes assume if
these products can be easily purchased in retail stores and over the internet, then they must be allowed under NCAA rules. THIS IS NOT TRUE! Advice of a store clerk, the distributor at the gym or anyone who is not with the institutional
athletics program has resulted in erroneous information regarding the presence of NCAA banned substances.
Reliance on this erroneous information may result in positive drug tests. Appeals based on ignorance have not been
successful in overturning positive drug-test penalties.
The student-athlete who uses a nutritional substance without checking the ingredients with the Sports Medicine
Department or the Strength and Conditioning coach and tests positive for banned substances will be held in violation of Bylaw 22.214.171.124.1 (Ineligibility for Use of Banned Drugs). Student-athletes who test positive are subject to at least a
one-year suspension and loss of eligibility.
the use of tobacco products is prohibited for coaches, game officials and student-athletes in all sports during practice
and competition. A student-athlete who uses tobacco products during practice or competition is automatically idisqualified for the remainder of that practice or game.
You are solely responsible for what you consume. If you use, you use at your own risk!

SOME ITEMS METABOLIZE TO BECOME BANNED SUBSTANCES ONCE YOU HAVE INGESTED THEM. YOU NEED TO DISCUSS ANY ITEMS YOU ARE TAKING WITH THE HEAD ATHLETIC TRAINER, THE TEAM PHYSICIAN, OR THE STRENGTH AND CONDITIONING COACH.
