5. HistoryBack to top

The agency was established in January 1997 initially through a memorandum of understanding between the National Sports Governing Bodies (NSGB) and Sports Clubs adopting and implementing a national policy via the auspices of the Ministry of Youth, Sport and Recreation.  Fully funded almost entirely since inception by the Government through the former National Drug Commission in partnership with the Department for Youth, Sport & Recreation the agency was initially established with one part time administrator and sub contracted drug-testing services in 1998.

Initially, in 1999, every athlete who represented the country was required to be screened and thus began the first component of the Domestic programme for pre event testing that was introduced to the sporting community. The next phase which began in early 2000 was the introduction of the random component, where we tested 10% of the memberships of 32 sporting bodies. In 2006, with the reduction of the numbers of positive finds, the Board amended the policy to 5% of each of the sporting bodies for random testing.

Since 2003, with the introduction of the WADA 2003 Code, a strict emphasis was placed on the agency to increase the volume of performance enhancing screenings and to introduce mandatory education for elite and national athletes and athlete support personnel.  The BCDS signed the WADA Code in 2003 as a commitment to the Spirit of Sport. The Bermuda Government signed the Copenhagen Agreement in 2004 and shortly thereafter agreed to the UNESCO Agreement as a Dependent Territory of the United Kingdom.


BSADA Logo
Recently, the agency undertook a rebranding exercise given the change in name and the additional responsibilities that the Legislation will designate to the Agency.

The BSADA logo has an icon which represents a star.  This particular design has a number of meanings.

- The star is made up with solid coloured check marks along with a solid coloured circle at the bottom corner of each check mark.
- The check mark represents the all clear for an athlete or that everything checks out for them to carry on without incident.
- The solid circle along with the check mark together symbolizes a stylized representation of a person.  This along with the overlapping of each check mark refers to our community.  This represents the community working together for a common goal.  This common goal would see the success of the athlete.

Colours used in the star icon represent the green lush landscape of our island home.  Green also symbolizes prosperity which we hope will transfer into a large number of athletes with a large number of achievements in their sports career.
