If you're not into Soccer Refereeing you're in the wrong place...

My name is Tony Whatt and I am a Referee with the
Nepean District Soccer Referees' Association (NDSRA)
located west of Sydney, Australia.

It is my intention on this page to provide a brief insight into soccer
refereeing in Australia and in particular NSW and the Nepean District.

My main aim is to provide information to the Referee visiting our area
(either in person or via the internet) and at this stage local referees may find the information does not contain some of the detail that they would want.

I do not intend to to discuss the laws or particular incidents as there
are a number of mailing list and www sites that handle this aspect.

I live in a small town called Winmalee located in the Blue Mountains
some 85 kilometres west of Sydney and have been an active referee for
the past 19 years attaining a full Class I certificate. I have been
graded to officiate at the highest level matches within the district.

Anyhow, enough about me for the time being.
Why not try out some of the links below.
