Mackay and Whitsunday Life

Whitsunday Touch Football

Seven Whitsunday Touch Football Association (WTA) members attended a Level One (Foundation) Referee Course last Saturday morning, facilitated by Jason Miller from Mackay Touch.

Mr Miller was an “engaging presenter and ensured that the course was enjoyed by all participants,” according to Whitsunday Touch’s Alita DeBrincat.

“He was quite impressed with the level of understanding of the rules throughout the group and stressed that refereeing would help their progress as players as well,” Mr DeBrincat said.

“Congratulations Bryson, Hudson, Aiden, Wendy, Coralie, Laine, and Claudia -- our new Level One Referees.”

Jason also committed to visiting game nights in the future to continue mentoring the club’s new referees.

Saturday was a busy day with a spectacular “Festival of Footy” sponsored by Whitsunday Sports Park, which WTA members were actively involved in before, during and after.  

The club extended its thanks to all who generously volunteered.
