Nepean District Soccer Referees Association
Welcome to the Nepean District Soccer Referees' Association (NDSRA) website
The internet and its seemingly endless technological possibilities are rapidly changing our world, particularly the way we communicate and access information.
This website provides increased and flexible access, to referee material, for both the football community in general and the individual referee in particular.
Over the coming weeks,we hope to add more content, and a portal for all current NDSRA referees, to access material in preparation for another season.
If you are a current NDSRA referee, on the right hand side under the menu, you will note that you can login which will provide further options and forms for you to execute your role as Referee.
If you have not got your login and password, please wait, they will sent to you shortly.

Luke Morgan receives Gunn Award from Kerry Gunn
The recipient of the 2012/13 David John Gunn Perpetual award for the Junior Referee of the Year is the up-and-coming, Luke Morgan.
The award is in honour of David Gunn a “gentle “man immersed in his commitment towards his fellow colleagues. David passed away in November 2010, was a constant inspiration and support to many referees. He left a personal trademark, among them his high moral and ethical standards on and off the field. He had a trust in the quality development of our referees and related to them all. He was humble and his accummulated wisdom rubbed off.
His assessments were meaningful, you were rest assured that if he approved of a referee’s performance , the referee had done well.
We trust that Luke’s successes as a referee, grow out of the inspiration of David Gunn.
