1 UNIVERSITY OF NEW HAMPSHIRE ATHLETIC DEPARTMENT DRUG/ALCOHOL EDUCATION, SCREENING AND REHABILITATION PROGRAM Reviewed : June 10, 2014 INTRODUCTION University of New Hampshire student-athletes are expected to conduct themselves in a positive manner in the academic, athletic and public community. This Policy implements the University of New Hampshire s goals of protecting the health and welfare of the student-athlete, promoting the integrity of intercollegiate competition, and affirming compliance with laws, rules and regulations concerning drug use. The use of illegal drugs, misuse of legal drugs and dietary supplements, use of performance-enhancing substances, use of alcohol and inappropriate use of tobacco are inconsistent with the standards expected of student-athletes at the University of New Hampshire. Drug and alcohol misuse can create serious social and health problems for the student-athlete. It is vital that student-athletes learn how the abuse of drugs or alcohol can be a severe detriment to their general health as well as athletic performance. A student athlete found to be positive for a banned substance and/or metabolite as specified by the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) and/or the University of New Hampshire, are subject to loss of eligibility. This not only penalizes the student-athlete and their team, but also reflects negatively on the University of New Hampshire community. The University of New Hampshire promotes a healthy lifestyle and competitive environment by creating an opportunity to learn about the effects of certain drugs and to participate in a drug free environment. The implementation of drug education, drug-screening, and drug counseling programs serve the University's goal of educating and protecting the health and well being of each student-athlete. The University of New Hampshire reserves the right to make changes to this policy as needed, and this Policy should not be construed to create a contract between student-athlete and University of New Hampshire. Please note this policy represents the University of New Hampshire Athletic Department Drug/Alcohol Education, Screening and Rehabilitation Program, which is separate and distinct from the NCAA drug-testing program (including test panels and all sanction phases). Information regarding the NCAA drug-testing program and banned drug classes is available at POLICY STATEMENT The University of New Hampshire, as a member of the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA), prohibits student-athletes from the non-prescribed use of substances described by the NCAA as Banned Drug Classes (See NCAA Bylaw , Banned Drugs Appendix A) and reserves the right to test for substances not contained on the NCAA banned-drug list and may test at cut off levels that differ from the NCAA program. The misuse of prescription drugs, alcohol, tobacco or any other controlled or illegal substances are also prohibited. For the purposes of this policy, student-athlete shall mean any student-athlete at University of New Hampshire who is enrolled as a student and who is listed as a current participant on an NCAA Squad List. This includes any 5 th year student-athletes, non-qualifiers or otherwise ineligible student-athletes. The University of New Hampshire Athletics Department will make every effort to support the student-athlete through education and counseling in connection with this Policy. However, sanctions will be imposed against the student-athlete if he or she:

2 1. Fails to sign the Consent to Participate in Drug Testing and Authorization for Release of Information Form (See Appendix B); 2. Tests positive or otherwise fails to comply with any component of this Policy; or 3. Fails to comply with the mandatory assessment or to participate in a counseling / rehabilitation program. It is the responsibility of the student-athlete to ensure that he/she is in compliance with this Policy. The Director of Athletics shall designate a Drug Testing Coordinator. The Drug Testing Coordinator will work with the Director of Athletics, the Director of Sports Medicine and Team Physicians to implement all aspects of this Policy. EDUCATION COMPONENT The Drug Testing Coordinator will implement an educational program for student-athletes that: 1. Explains the University of New Hampshire Drug/Alcohol Education, Screening and Rehabilitation Policy and the NCAA Drug-Testing Program. 2. Explains how legal and illegal substances affect the human body and alter athletic performance. 3. Teaches coping skills needed to be a substance-free student-athlete. 4. Creates an education program for administration, coaches and staff to identify student-athletes using controlled or illegal substances and to effectively intervene with the student-athlete who is not compliant with this Policy. The Drug Testing Coordinator (or designee) will present this Policy at a preseason meeting with student-athletes and will inform the student-athletes of the consequences of not adhering to this Policy. Each student-athlete will be required to sign and return the Consent to Participate in Drug Testing and Authorization for Release of Information Form prior to the student-athlete participating in a practice or game (See Appendix B). If the student-athlete is under the age of eighteen, the form must also be signed by the parents(s) or guardian (s). Failure of the student-athlete to sign and return the Consent to Participate in Drug Testing and Authorization for Release of Information Form will result in the student-athlete being ineligible to practice or compete until the form is signed and received by the Drug Testing Coordinator. DRUG TESTING COMPONENT Systematic drug testing will be used by the University of New Hampshire to identify student-athletes who may be using substances banned by this Policy. The drug and/or alcohol screening process may include analysis of, but is not limited to, the NCAA list of banned-drug classes (See Appendix A). For an ongoing updated listing of the banned-drug classes view the NCAA s web site at Prohibited substances that University of New Hampshire may screen for include, without limitation, alcohol (in any sport), marijuana, PCP, opiates, MDMA (Ecstasy), amphetamines/methamphetamines, cocaine, masking agents/diuretics, and anabolic steroids. University of New Hampshire requires that all student-athletes keep the athletic training staff and/or team physician aware of any prescribed drugs and dietary supplements that he or she may be taking (See Appendix C). University of New Hampshire reserves the right to test for substances not contained on the NCAA banneddrug list and may test at cut off levels that differ from the NCAA program. Page 2 of 9

3 DIETARY SUPPLEMENTS The University of New Hampshire Department of Athletics personnel will not distribute or encourage the use of any dietary supplements or ergogenic aids. Many dietary supplements or ergogenic aids contain banned substances. Oftentimes the labeling of dietary supplements is not accurate and is misleading. Terms such as healthy or all natural do not mean dietary supplements do not contain a banned substance or are safe to take. Using dietary supplements may cause positive drug tests. Student-athletes who are currently taking dietary supplements or intend to take any are required to submit and review each of the products with the Head Athletic Trainer (See Appendix C). Student-athletes are solely responsible for any substance that they ingest. All student-athletes are encouraged to use the Drug Free Sport Resource Exchange Center (REC) to obtain current and accurate information on dietary supplements or ergogenic aids. All inquiries to the REC are confidential. The Resource Exchange Center may be accessed at The password is ncaa1. By signing the University of New Hampshire Drug/Alcohol Education, Screening and Rehabilitation Policy Consent Form, the student-athlete: 1. Acknowledges that he/she understands that they are to disclose all dietary supplements used to the head athletic trainer; 2. Acknowledges the aforementioned policies and statements, and fully accepts the detrimental and possibly permanent defects caused by the use of dietary supplements; 3. Fully accepts that they have been made aware of the University of New Hampshire and the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) policies with regard to the use of dietary supplements; 4. Accepts any and all liability if they have in the past used, continue to use, and/or use at anytime in the future, dietary supplements in any form; and releases the University of New Hampshire, its agents, and all personnel of any and all responsibility and liability related to such use. Student-athletes are cautioned that dietary or nutritional supplements may contain banned substances. Student-athletes are required to report and have on file with the athletic training staff and team physician at the University of New Hampshire, any prescription and non-prescription medication(s) being taken while a student-athlete. SELECTED TYPES OF DRUG TESTING The drug testing component may include unannounced random testing, pre-season screening, reasonable suspicion screening, post-season/championship testing, re-entry testing, and follow-up testing of all studentathletes at the University of New Hampshire. 1. Random Testing All student-athletes who have signed the institutional drug-testing consent form and are listed on the institutional squad list are subject to unannounced random testing. The National Center for Drug Free Sport will select student-athletes from the official institutional squad lists by using a computerized random number program. Student-athletes will receive no more than 24 hours of notification prior to the testing event. 2. Pre-season Testing Student-athletes are subject to pre-season drug testing and may be notified of such by the Director of Athletics or his/her designee at any time prior to their first competition. 3. Reasonable Suspicion Testing If there is reasonable cause to suspect a student-athlete is engaged in the use of prohibited drugs, the student-athlete may be subject to suspicion-based testing as authorized by this Policy. The Athletic Director, the Director of Sports Medicine and the Drug Testing Coordinator shall collectively Page 3 of 9

4 determine (by majority vote) if sufficient objective information exists to conduct suspicion-based testing on a specific individual or individuals. Such reasonable suspicion may be based on objective information as determined by the Director of Athletics or by an Associate/Assistant Athletic Director, Head Coach, Assistant Coach, Head Athletic Trainer, or Assistant Athletic Trainer and deemed reliable by the Director of Athletics or his/her designee. Reasonable suspicion may include, without limitation, 1) observed possession or use of substances appearing to be prohibited drugs, 2) arrest or conviction for a criminal offense related to the possession or transfer of prohibited drugs or substances, or 3) observed abnormal appearance, conduct or behavior reasonably interpretable as being caused by the use of prohibited drugs or substances. Among the indicators which may be used in evaluating a student-athlete s abnormal appearance, conduct or performance are: class attendance, significant GPA changes, athletic practice attendance, increased injury rate or illness, physical appearance changes, academic/athletic motivational level, emotional condition, mood changes, and legal involvement (See Appendix D). If suspected, the Director of Athletics or his/her designee will notify the student-athlete and the student-athlete must stay with a member of their coaching staff, the athletics administration staff, or the sports medicine staff, until an adequate specimen is produced. Note: The possession and/or use of illegal substances may be determined by means other than urinalysis. When an individual is arrested on charges or otherwise found related to use and/or trafficking in banned substances he/she will be subject to the same procedures that would be followed in the case of a positive urinalysis. 4. Postseason/Championship Testing Any participant or team likely to advance to post-season championship competition may be subject to additional testing. Testing may be required of all team members or individual student-athletes at any time within thirty (30) days prior to the post-season competition. If a student-athlete tests positive, he or she will not be allowed to compete at the post-season event and will be subject to the sanctions herein. 5. Re-entry Testing A student-athlete, who has had his or her eligibility to participate in intercollegiate sports suspended as a result of a drug or alcohol violation, may be required to undergo re-entry drug and/or alcohol testing prior to regaining eligibility. The Director of Athletics or his/her designee shall arrange for re-entry testing after the counselor or specialist involved in the student-athlete s case indicates that re-entry into the intercollegiate sports program is appropriate. 6. Follow-up Testing A student-athlete who has provided multiple dilute samples during a testing event (3 or more) or returned to participation in intercollegiate sports following a positive drug test under this policy may be subject to follow-up testing. Testing will be unannounced and will be required at a frequency determined by the Athletic Director or his/her designee in consultation with the counselor or specialist involved in the student-athlete s case. NOTIFICATION AND COLLECTION PROCEDURES The student-athlete will be notified of and scheduled for testing by University of New Hampshire. Studentathletes will receive no more than 24 hours of notification prior to the testing event. The dates for testing will be determined on a random basis by the Director of Athletics and the Drug Testing Coordinator. Notifications of testing shall consist of a face-to-face meeting with the student-athlete, a phone conversation with the studentathlete, and/or an electronic mail notification that has been confirmed by the student-athlete. The Director of Athletics or his/her designee will notify the student-athlete of the date and time to report to the testing station and will have the student-athlete read and sign the Student-Athlete Notification Form (See Appendix E). The Director of Athletics or his/her designee will be in the testing station to certify the identity of the studentathletes selected. Student-athletes shall provide picture identification when entering the drug-testing station. Page 4 of 9

5 Once at the testing site, the student-athlete will remain there until an adequate urine sample is collected. The Director of Athletics or his/her designee must remain in the collection station until all student-athletes complete the collection process. The collection process and protocol can be found in Appendix F. Failure to report to the site, failure to give a urine sample or manipulation of a sample will be treated as a positive test result. If a student-athlete is suspected of intentionally attempting to dilute a specimen or the specific gravity is below 1.005, the student-athlete will be subject to reasonable suspicion testing. ALL COLLECTIONS AND/OR TESTING UNDER THIS POLICY SHALL BE OBSERVED COLLECTIONS. LABORTORY ANALYSIS/REPORTING RESULTS Urine samples will be collected and sent to an independent SAMHSA and/or World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) approved laboratory for analysis. The University of New Hampshire hereby certifies that any laboratory it engages for the testing of performance enhancing drugs/anabolic agents will abide by the World Anti-Doping Agency code of ethics as it relates to the testing of samples. Furthermore, University of New Hampshire hereby certifies that no sample will be sent to a laboratory for the sole purpose of monitoring an athlete for the detection of performance enhancing substances in order to circumvent a positive drug test. Each sample will be tested in accordance with this policy to determine if banned drugs or substances are present and the appropriate sanctions will apply for positive results. If the laboratory reports a specimen as substituted, manipulated or adulterated, [which under the circumstances could only have been done by the student-athlete], the student-athlete will be deemed to have refused to submit to testing and treated as if the test were positive for a banned substance. All student-athlete information and records associated with the University of New Hampshire drug- testing program will be confidential and will be released only to those individuals with a legitimate need to know. EFFECT OF POSITIVE RESULTS (PRESENCE OF A PROHIBITED SUBSTANCE[S]). 1. If a student-athlete s specimen tests positive, the Director of Athletics (and/or designee) will notify the student-athlete and coach. The student-athlete s parent or guardian may be notified. 2. The Drug Testing Coordinator will meet with the student-athlete and inform him/her of sanctions and appeal rights. 3. If a student-athlete s specimen tests positive, the student athlete will be required to reimburse the University of New Hampshire for the cost of the drug test and any additional costs associated with disciplinary action. The Director of Athletics shall have the discretion to waive these costs if the studentathlete can demonstrate, through documentation that extraordinary financial circumstances exist. SANCTIONS Refusal to sign a consent form prohibits a student-athlete from participating in any intercollegiate sport at University of New Hampshire. Any student-athlete who tests positive for a banned substance or who refuses to submit to a required drug test, and/or who violates the terms of the safe harbor program as described in this policy shall be subject to the sanctions below. Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, a team physician, in his/her sole discretion, reserves the right to withhold a student-athlete from practice and/or Page 5 of 9

6 competition if such practice and/or competition would pose a threat to the health and safety of the studentathlete or his/her competitors. However, any decision to restrict a student-athlete from practice and/or competition for health and safety concerns must be based on credible evidence. Only the team physician or director of sports medicine may release a student-athlete to resume competition and/or practice. Minimum sanctions for a confirmed positive drug test under this Policy are described below. Additional sanctions may be imposed by the Head Coach as a result of team policy violations, at the discretion of the Director of Athletics. All violations of this policy are cumulative. First Violation 1. The student-athlete will be required to meet with the Director of Athletics or his/ her designee. The Director of Athletics will inform the student-athlete of any or all sanctions.. The student-athlete, with the knowledge of the Director of Athletics, will notify and inform his or her parent(s) or legal guardian(s). 2. The student-athlete will be required to complete a mandatory individualized education and counseling program at the University of New Hampshire. If the student-athlete fails to comply, this shall result in further sanctions and/or his/her removal from all intercollegiate teams at the University of New Hampshire. 3. The student-athlete will be subject to suspicion-based drug testing for the remainder of his/her athletic eligibility. 4. The student-athlete will be suspended immediately and will be ineligible to compete in the next 10% (or a minimum of one contest) of his/her competitions in the championship season (as defined by NCAA rules) at the University of New Hampshire from the date the student-athlete was officially notified of the positive test. If the student-athlete tests positive (a second time) or is found to be in misconduct related to the use/abuse or distribution of a banned substance ) the next escalating sanction will be applied Second Violation 1. The student-athlete will be required to meet with the Director of Athletics or his/ her designee. The Director of Athletics will inform the student-athlete of any or all sanctions.. The student-athlete, with the knowledge of the Director of Athletics, will notify and inform his or her parent(s) or legal guardian(s). 2. The student-athlete will be required to complete a mandatory individualized education and counseling program at the University of New Hampshire. If the student-athlete fails to comply, this may result in further sanctions and/or his/her removal from all intercollegiate teams at the University of New Hampshire. 3. The student-athlete will be subject to suspicion-based drug testing for the remainder of his/her athletic eligibility. 4. The student-athlete will be suspended immediately and will be ineligible to compete in the next 50% of his/her competition in the championship season (as defined by NCAA rules) at the University of New Hampshire from the date the student-athlete tested positive. If a student-athlete tests positive (third time)or is found to be in misconduct related to the use/abuse or distribution of a banned substance the next escalating sanction will be applied. Third Violation 1. Immediate and permanent dismissal from all University of New Hampshire athletic teams. The studentathlete, with the knowledge of the Director of Athletics, will notify and inform his or her parent(s) or legal guardian(s). 2. Revocation of all athletically related financial aid for the remainder of the academic year and nonrenewal of athletically related financial aid for all subsequent years. Page 6 of 9

7 3. The student-athlete will be encouraged to remain in the drug education rehabilitation / treatment program. COUNSELING COMPONENT The counseling component provides assessment and counseling for the student-athlete as a result of mandatory sanctions or self-referral. The counselor will (i) evaluate the student-athlete's needs, (ii) develop a rehabilitation plan including recommendation for services, behavioral guidelines and other appropriate conditions, and (iii) make referrals as needed. If the student-athlete wishes to continue participation in University of New Hampshire athletics, the student-athlete must sign an Authorization for Release of Information Form which will enable the counseling staff to communicate with the Drug Testing Coordinator and/or the Director of Athletics about the rehabilitation plan as needed to help the student-athlete and ensure compliance with this Policy. Any student-athlete who seeks counseling, rehabilitation or other treatment for drug or alcohol use will be eligible to receive supportive services. If a student-athlete voluntarily requests assistance for a drug and /or alcohol abuse problem from a University of New Hampshire athletic department staff member, this voluntary action will be taken into consideration when determining appropriate sanctions. University of New Hampshire counselors will provide initial consult for counseling and rehabilitation services. If counseling, rehabilitation, or treatment must be referred off campus, the University of New Hampshire will not be responsible for funding of these services. SAFE HARBOR PROGRAM A student-athlete eligible for the University of New Hampshire s Safe Harbor Program may refer himself or herself to the Program for voluntary evaluation, testing and counseling. A student-athlete is not eligible for the Program after he or she has been informed of an impending drug test, after a previous University of New Hampshire or NCAA positive drug test, and/or found to be in misconduct related to the use/abuse or distribution of a banned substance This program allows a student-athlete to self report a substance problem prior to a positive test, and without the initial negative ramifications of a positive test. The University of New Hampshire will work with the student-athlete to prepare a treatment plan, which shall include confidential drug testing. The student-athlete will be tested for banned substances upon entry into the Safe Harbor Program. This baseline testing is for medical purposes to determine what the individual is taking and to determine what type of program can be designed to best assist this individual. This test, if positive, is for evaluation purposes and is not considered a violation of this Policy. The team physician may suspend the student athlete from play or practice if medically indicated. A student-athlete will be permitted to remain in the Safe Harbor Program for a reasonable period of time, in most cases not to exceed thirty (30) days, as determined by the treatment plan. A treatment plan may be designed to accommodate a period of time longer than thirty (30) days if a student-athlete has a substance in his/her system that takes longer than thirty (30) days to process. A student-athlete will not be permitted to enter the Safe Harbor Program thirty (30) days prior to NCAA or Conference postseason competition. A student-athlete will only be permitted to enter the Safe Harbor Program one time during his/her athletics eligibility at the University of New Hampshire. A student-athlete will be removed from the Safe Harbor Program if the student-athlete is determined to have new substance use while enrolled in the program (subsequent to the individual's baseline test), or fails to comply with the requirements of the treatment plan, or if the student is found to be in misconduct related to the use/abuse or distribution of a banned substance. This subsequent positive test/violation while enrolled in the program, will subject the individual to the next level penalty structure of this Policy (i.e., second violation penalties or third violation penalties). Once successfully removed from the program, the student-athlete would Page 7 of 9

8 be subject to all elements of the University of New Hampshire drug testing policies and appropriate sanctions will be applied. While in compliance with the Safe Harbor Program treatment plan, the student-athlete will not be included in the list of student-athletes eligible for random testing by the University of New Hampshire. However, studentathletes in the Safe Harbor Program may be selected for drug testing by the NCAA. The Director of Athletics, The Director of Sports Medicine, the Drug Testing Coordinator, the head coach and the team physician will be informed of the student s participation in the Safe Harbor Program. MEDICAL EXCEPTION PROCESS The NCAA and University of New Hampshire recognize that some banned substances are used for legitimate medical purposes. Accordingly, the NCAA and University of New Hampshire allow exceptions to be made for those participants with a documented medical history demonstrating the need for regular use of such a drug. Student-athletes are required to report and have on file with the athletic training staff and team physician at the University of New Hampshire, any prescription and non-prescription medication(s) being taken while a studentathlete (See Appendix C). This documentation must be approved and on file prior to the date of the first practice each year and updated regularly. If the medication has not been reported and/or documentation is not on file prior to notification of a drug test, the student-athlete may not be granted a medical exception. Exceptions may be granted for substances included in the following classes of banned drugs: stimulants, beta blockers, diuretics and peptide hormones. Information regarding exceptions procedures can be found at APPEAL PROCESS 1. The student-athlete's decision to appeal must be made in writing within five business days from receipt of written notification that the test was positive, and be sent to the Faculty Athletic Representative (FAR) at University of New Hampshire. 2. A student-athlete can only appeal errors in procedures or a clearly erroneous finding in this process. 3. The appeal board (or designees) shall make every attempt to convene within three business days of receipt of appeal. The appeal board shall consist of the FAR (Chair), the Vice President for Student & Academic Services, and one faculty or staff member of the UNH President's Athletic Advisory Committee. The University shall provide one appeal opportunity, and this opportunity can be an inperson hearing or a telephone conference call (choice of the chair), which shall include the appeal board, the student-athlete, and an advocate for the student-athlete (if they so desire). This is not a legal hearing therefore if the student-athlete chooses to have an advocate, they shall not be a lawyer, or have a background in legal proceedings The University s Drug Testing Coordinator and the Athletic Director can also participate in the appeal hearing but will serve in an ex-officio capacity only. In the event the appeal board is unable to convene within three business days, the appeal board will convene as soon as possible to avoid withholding the student-athlete from competition unnecessarily and the student-athlete will be notified in writing of the new appeal date. 3. After reviewing the materials, hearing the rationale presented by the student-athlete, and asking any questions of the participants, the appeal board will determine if there is a reasonable basis for granting the student-athlete's appeal (e.g., evidence of a false/positive test and/or error in procedure or process of administering the drug test). The decision of the appeal board shall be final, and no Page 8 of 9

9 other university representative or body shall have the authority to override the appeal board's decision. 4. The Chair of the Appeal Board will communicate the decision in writing to the student-athlete and the Drug Testing Coordinator. If the Appeal Board denies the appeal, the Director of Athletics shall convene the Substance Abuse Team, which shall be comprised of the Director of Athletics (or designee), a team physician, a substance abuse counselor and the Drug Testing Coordinator. The Substance Abuse Team shall meet to review the available information, develop a strategy for a counseling referral and short-term disposition, and serve in an advisory capacity to the Director of Athletics.

10 College/University: Urine Collection Guidelines for Clients 1. Only those persons authorized by the institution will be allowed in the collection room. 2. When arriving to the collection room, the student-athlete will provide photo identification or a client representative will need to identify the student-athlete. The student-athlete will then print his or her name and arrival time on the Roster Sign-In Form. 3. The student-athlete will select a Custody & Control Form (CCF) from a supply of such and work with the institutional collector to complete the necessary information before proceeding with the specimen collection process. 4. The student-athlete will select a specimen collection beaker from a supply of such and will be escorted by the institutional collector (same gender) to the restroom to provide a specimen. The student-athlete will rinse his or her hands with water (no soap) and then dry their hands. Then the student-athlete will place a specimen barcode from the Custody & Control Form onto the beaker. 5. The institutional collector will directly observe the furnishing of the urine specimen to assure the integrity of the specimen. 6. The student-athlete will be responsible for keeping the collection beaker closed and controlled. 7. Fluids and food given to student-athletes who have difficulty voiding must be from sealed containers (approved by the institutional collector), opened and consumed in the collection room. These items must be free of any other banned substances. 8. If the specimen is incomplete, the student-athlete must remain in the collection room until the sample is completed. During this period, the student-athlete is responsible for keeping the collection beaker closed and controlled. 9. If the specimen is incomplete and the student-athlete must leave the collection room for a reason approved by the institutional collector, the specimen must be discarded. 10. Upon return to the collection room, the student-athlete will begin the collection procedure again. 11. Once an adequate volume specimen is provided; the institutional collector will escort the studentathlete to the specimen processing table. 12. The specimen processor will instruct the student-athlete to closely observe the specimen processing steps and will then measure the specific gravity. 13. If the urine has a specific gravity below 1.005, no value will be recorded on the CCF and the specimen will be discarded by the student-athlete with the institutional collector observing. The student-athlete must remain in the collection room until another specimen is provided. The studentathlete will provide another specimen. 14. Once the specimen processor has determined the specimen has a specific gravity above the sample will be processed and sent to the laboratory. 15. If the laboratory determines that a student-athlete s sample is inadequate for analysis, at the client s discretion, another sample may be collected. 7/29/2013 Confidential and proprietary information of The National Center for Drug Free Sport, Inc.

11 College/University: Urine Collection Guidelines for Clients 16. If a student-athlete is suspected of manipulating specimens (e.g., via dilution, substitution), the institutional collector will collect another specimen from the student-athlete. 17. Once a specimen has been provided that meets the on-site specific gravity, the student-athlete will select a sample collection kit from a supply of such. 18. The specimen processor will open the kit, demonstrate to the student-athlete the vials are securely sealed, open the plastic and open the A vial lid. The processor will pour the urine into the A and B vials and close the lids. The specimen processor should pour urine into vials above the minimum volume level (35 ml in A vial; 15 ml in B vial) and pour as much urine as possible into the vials using care not to exceed the maximum levels (90 ml in A vial; 60 ml in B vial). 19. The specimen processor will securely close the lids on each vial and then seal each vial using the vial seals attached to the CCF; assuring seals are tightly adhered to the vials with no tears or loose areas. 20. The specimen processor must then collect all necessary signatures (collector, donor, witness, and collector/specimen processor) and dates/times where indicated on the CCF. 21. The specimen processor will place the laboratory copy of the CCF in the back pouch of the plastic bag and the vials in the front pouch of the same bag. The bag should then be sealed. The sealed bag with vials will then be placed in the sample box. The box will then be sealed. 22. The student-athlete is then released by the institutional collector. 23. All sealed samples will be secured in a shipping case. The collector will prepare the case for forwarding. When two split samples are collected and packaged, care must be taken to assure one sample is placed in the shipping container for shipment to the drugs of abuse laboratory and one sample is placed in the shipping container for shipment to the anabolic steroids laboratory. 24. After the collection has been completed, the samples will be forwarded to the appropriate laboratory and copies of any forms forwarded to the Sport Drug Testing Department. 25. The samples then become the property of the client. 26. If the student-athlete does not comply with the collection process, the institutional collector will notify the appropriate institutional administrator and Drug Free Sport. 7/29/2013 Confidential and proprietary information of The National Center for Drug Free Sport, Inc.
