Strategic is where the NGB will look at all the options on how best to improve the school/club, they will review everything on the school/clubâ€™s aims and objectives and their targets, strategic is not just looked at if they can see a weakness they look to improve all the time not just waiting for a weakness to act on. (Clerks Guide, 2005)The NGB will also do the following:
â€œThe national body will provide the means by which competition venues are selected; the national body will certify courses, approve stadiums, or otherwise ensure that all standards for the convening of a competition are met.
The national body will be responsible for all coaching certification within the sport. In many countries, to coach at a regional or national level, the coach is required to pass such testing as may be determined by the national body. The certification process often involves both technical knowledge of the sport as well as a more generalized expertise in sports theory.
Many national sport bodies take the lead in their culture in the promotion of healthy sport practices, often in conjunction with government agencies. Sport education will also include the dissemination of information concerning international rules and competition standards for items such as performance-enhancing drugs.
The national body will be the sole liaison in the sport to any companion international body; the national body will also deal directly with international organizations such as the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA)â€.

However, his failure to sit the original test carries a "strict liability" penalty leading to a probable misconduct chargeâ€ (BBC Sport). Even though Ferdinand passed the drugs test the F.A which is the English football association was not happy and that is why Ferdinand got banned for 8 months, the F.A had every right to ban the player because if they let one person get away with it then many more would think they could to they was right to ban him for that amount of period.
