Substance Abuse Testing Policies and Procedures
The Florida Gulf Coast University (FGCU) Department of Intercollegiate Athletics is committed to the physical and mental health and well being of its "student-athletes" (hereinafter defined). The University recognizes that the use of certain drugs and substances, legal or illegal, is not in the best interests of the student-athlete or FGCU Intercollegiate Athletics. In an effort to combat the use of illicit drugs and other substances, FGCU has implemented a comprehensive substance abuse education and testing program to promote healthy and responsible lifestyles for student-athletes. This policy is separate from the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) drug-testing program and carries with it separate sanctions to be imposed by Florida Gulf Coast University and the Florida Gulf Coast University Department of Intercollegiate Athletics. Purpose:
The purpose of the FGCU Substance Abuse Education and Testing Program is multifaceted. The program focuses on the following objectives: 1. Deterring the use of drugs and alcohol; 2. Identifying substance-abuse users; 3. Providing rehabilitation and educational services; 4. Promoting the role of FGCU student-athletes as representatives of the University and positive role models for the youth in the community; and 5. Counseling student-athletes who do not adhere to the requirements of the Program Compliance/Eligibility:
Participation in FGCU Intercollegiate Athletics is a privilege, not a right. To become
and remain a participant in FGCU Intercollegiate Athletics, a student-athlete must
comply with the terms of this program that encompasses drug education, screening,
and counseling. By signing FGCU's Substance Abuse Testing Consent Form, the
student-athlete agrees to submit to any and all tests ordered by FGCU
Intercollegiate Athletics in order to detect unauthorized drug and/or substance use.
Completion of this document is required of all student-athletes as a part of their pre-
participation physical examination.
What is Being Tested For/Banned Substances:
The Florida Gulf Coast University Athletics Department utilizes the most current
NCAA List of Banned Drug Classes (NCAA Bylaw 31.2.3.1), hereinafter collectively
referred to as "banned substances") for its substance abuse testing program. The
list consists of substances generally believed to be performance enhancing and/or
potentially harmful to the health and safety of the student-athlete. The drug classes
specifically include stimulants (such as amphetamines, ecstasy, and cocaine);
hallucinogenics (such as LSD); anabolic/androgenic steroids (such as Anvar and
Florida Gulf Coast University Policy 1.003 Substance Abuse Testing Program l Approved: 06/30/06 SUBSTANCE ABUSE TESTING PROGRAM Dianabol); diuretics; masking agents; and marijuana, as well as other drugs not prescribed for the student-athlete. This list may be obtained through: a) A member of the FGCU Sports Medicine Department; b) A member of the FGCU Athletics Compliance Office; or c) The NCAA Sports Sciences Internet site No substance belonging to the prohibited class(es) may be used, regardless of whether it is specifically listed as an example. Note: Florida Gulf Coast University reserves the right in its sole and absolute discretion to test for substances that are not listed on the NCAA Banned Substance List and may test any substance at detection levels, which differ from those, listed on the NCAA Banned Substance List. DRUG TESTING PROCEDURE
Random and Individual Testing Selection/Frequency:
All FGCU student-athletes, cheerleaders, student coaches, student managers, and
student athletic trainers (above and hereinafter referred to collectively as "student-
athletes") are subject to drug testing. Selection for the drug testing will occur
randomly, by social security number, throughout a student-athlete's association with
the FGCU Intercollegiate Athletic Department. The Director of Intercollegiate
Athletics, and/or his/her designee will determine the date, time, and site for testing.
FGCU will conduct random drug testing a minimum of one (1) time every six (6)
weeks, up to a maximum of once every twenty-four hours. All student-athletes are
eligible for each test.
Therefore, someone may be tested more than once per
year.
"Reasonable Suspicion" Testing:
In addition to random drug testing, the Florida Gulf Coast University Director of Intercollegiate Athletics or designee shall screen a student-athlete anytime there is reasonable suspicion that he/she may be engaged in the use of banned substances. The term "reasonable suspicion" means that the FGCU Director of Intercollegiate Athletics is in possession of the information giving rise to particularized and objective belief, supported by specific and articulable facts, for suspecting a student-athlete's use of banned substances. Furthermore, a student-athlete's possession or use of a prohibited substance, arrest or conviction related to the possession of, use or trafficking of banned substances, and/or abnormal conduct interpretable as being caused by the use of banned substances, all rise to the level of reasonable suspicion. Florida Gulf Coast University Policy 1.003 Substance Abuse Testing Program l Approved: 06/30/06 SUBSTANCE ABUSE TESTING PROGRAM
TEAM TESTING:
A team may be tested without notice. Notification Process:
1) Upon selection for testing, student-athletes will be notified prior to testing by the FGCU Director of Intercollegiate Athletics and/or his/her designee, the student-athlete's coach, or a member of the FGCU Athletics administration. a. Personnel will call all available phone numbers; attend the student- athlete's classes, etc., in an effort to notify the student-athlete. b.

The student-athlete will not be allowed to practice or otherwise participate in team activities until he/she has reported to the testing site and supplied a viable sample. 4) It is the Test Site Coordinator's responsibility to notify the Director of Intercollegiate Athletics and/or his/her designee of those individuals who do not report for their test within the scheduled time periods. 5) If a student-athlete does not report at the scheduled time for his/her test upon proper notice, he/she will be sanctioned appropriately for his/her action. A "no show" will be interpreted as a positive test result, and the student-athlete may be subject to penalties and sanctions at the discretion of the Director of Intercollegiate Athletics. Collection Procedures:
Substance abuse testing will be done by urinalysis, and every possible step will be taken to ensure and maintain the confidentiality of the test results and to ensure the identity and integrity of the sample throughout the collection and testing process. Only those persons authorized by the FGCU Director of Intercollegiate Athletics and/or his/her designee and/or the Test Site Coordinator will be allowed in the specimen collection and processing area.

NCAA Drug Testing Program
Each year, student-athletes will sign a drug-testing consent form demonstrating their understanding of the NCAA drug-testing program and their willingness to participate. Their consent statement is required by the NCAA of all student-athletes before participation in intercollegiate competition during the year in question. Failure to complete and sign the statement annually shall result in the student-athletes' ineligibility for participation in all intercollegiate competition. By signing the NCAA drug testing consent form, the student-athlete agrees to allow the NCAA to test the student-athlete in relation to any participation by the student-athlete in any NCAA championship or in any post-season football game certified by the NCAA for the banned substances listed in NCAA Bylaw 31.2.3.1. Additionally, for student-athletes who participate in Division II intercollegiate athletics, the NCAA on a year-round basis may drug test the student-athlete for the substances banned by the NCAA. A list of substances banned by the NCAA can be found at: A student-athlete who tests positive, consistent with the NCAA drug testing protocol,
shall be charged with the loss of a minimum of one season of competition in all
sports
if the season of competition has not yet begun for that student-athlete. A
student-athlete who tests positive during a season of competition will be ineligible to
participate in regular season and post-season competition during the time period ending
one calendar year after the positive drug test.
If a student-athlete tests positive for a second time for the use of any banned substance, other than a "street drug" as defined in NCAA Bylaw 31.2.3.1, the student-athlete loses all remaining regular season and post-season eligibility in all sports. Per NCAA Bylaw 18.4.1.5.1, if a student-athlete tests positive for the use of a "street drug" after being restored to eligibility, he/she shall be charged with the loss of one additional season of competition in all sports and also shall remain ineligible for regular season and post season competition at least through the next calendar year. A policy adopted by the NCAA Executive Committee establishes that the penalty for missing a scheduled drug test is the same as the penalty for testing positive for the use of a banned substance. Per NCAA Bylaw 18.4.1.5.1, a student-athlete will remain ineligible until the student-athlete retests negative and the NCAA Eligibility Committee restores the student-athlete's eligibility. The Director of Intercollegiate Athletics, Compliance Officer, and/or the Sports Medicine Staff will disseminate the list of banned substance classes to all student-athletes and educate them about products that might contain banned substances. All student- Florida Gulf Coast University Policy 1.003 Substance Abuse Testing Program l Approved: 06/30/06 SUBSTANCE ABUSE TESTING PROGRAM athletes will be notified if the list changes during the academic year.
