Established in 1980
Eugene Binda started Referees Crease LLC with a passion for officiating in 1980 when he began as an assignor for a few teams. Since then Referees Crease has grown into the Association that it is now over 1,500 officials and leagues spanning the entire country. Ranging in levels from youth hockey, junior hockey, NCAA hockey, and professional hockey.
The goal of our organization is to recruit, train, and advance officials to higher levels of officiating, through a comprehensive training program. It is our long term mission to create a pool of officials who implement rules and call the game in similar fashion at all levels of hockey.
