I pledge that I will abide to the code of conduct and support the mission and objectives of the TFAA. I understand that I can communicate with TFAA leadership to influence change in the TFAA code of conduct and I will do so as needed as I recognize the TFAA as the only independent organization working specifically to advance its members’ rights in the profession of athletics.
I pledge that I have neither given nor taken any substance that may violate current anti-doping rules or principles nor have I ever been convicted of an anti-doping violation. I understand that I am responsible for informing the TFAA of any potential violations and that failure to do so may result in forfeiture of any accrued or future benefits as well as rejection of my membership status.
I support the TFAA as the voice of its athlete members to improve member rights. I recognize that the TFAA serves to create greater professional opportunities for its members.
