Athlete Central

Launched in November 2019, 'Athlete Central' is WADA's new app designed to simplify athlete compliance with the whereabouts requirements as part of the global Anti-Doping programme.

Information about WADA's app

  • The 'Athlete Central' app was developed by WADA and released on November 28, 2019. NADA is also a user of the app.
  • All problems with the Athlete Central app that NADA Germany receives from athletes are communicated by NADA to WADA so that the system can be improved.
  • The ADAMS app (not the ADAMS system) was shut down on April 15, 2020. Athletes who do not use the ADAMS desktop version exclusively should download the Athlete Central app.
  • The Athlete Central app is a WADA application. WADA has set up a helpdesk for questions and problems: athletecentral[at]wada-ama.org or call +1 514 904 8800.
  • In the event of any log-in problems, athletes can use the alternative contact options (SMS, e-mail, answering machine).
  • In the event of open questions or problems, users can also contact the NADA Testing department directly by email (dks[at]nada.de). NADA Germany forwards all comments to WADA.
  • NADA Germany has summarized frequently asked questions about Athlete Central in its own FAQs. You can find these below.


Managing whereabouts via ADAMS as an RTP and NTP athlete is possible with 'Athlete Central' at any time.
