Athlete – I am a professional or elite athlete. Can I donate?

We recommend you don't donate blood during a competitive period or season. This is because it could possibly have a minor, temporary impact on performance. Sport Integrity Australia has strict guidelines about recording details of each whole blood donation. 

Donating plasma or platelets may breach regulations set down by Sport Integrity Australia and the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA). Check with your sporting body and/or the Sport Integrity Australia/WADA websites for guidance.
