Division Information and Rules: 

Drug Testing: NEW!

Every athlete who enters this show will be drug tested. There is no additional charge for testing. The testing process for this event may be inconvenient but well worth the extra effort to provide the same testing experience for each athlete. By entering this event, each athlete agrees to schedule and take a 30 minute polygraph test prior to the competition at either the Colorado Springs or Denver testing locations to be announced. Each athlete will be sent a Calendly scheduling link to set the testing appointment. Athletes traveling the greatest distances need to get entries in early to be able to schedule testing times closest to the show date.
Each athlete agrees to abide by the professional polygraph results and no refunds will be given for a positive test result.

TUE FORMS

TUE form will only be considered by the NPC under the following circumstances:

1. The athlete would experience a significant impairment to health if the prohibited substance were withheld while treating an acute or chronic medical condition.
2. The use of the prohibited substance would produce no additional enhancement of performance other than that which might be anticipated by a return state to normal health following the treatment of a legitimate medical condition.
3. There are no reasonable therapeutic alternatives or other alternatives are ineffective.  NOTE: hormone replacement therapy (HRT), for example supplementing with prescribed testosterone in any form to raise testosterone levels due to natural decreases that occur with aging (even if to just elevate levels to within ‘normal’ ranges), is NOT considered a medicinal exception.

4. TUEs granted by the NPC are valid for the duration of the treatment as prescribed by the physician up to a maximum of four years. It is the athlete’s responsibility to know when the TUE expires and to apply for renewal before this date if necessary.
