LA Premier League : Referee - Alex Gorin
From 1985 until 1991, he was a National Referee for the Premier Division of the USSR Professional Football League. Since 1996, he has held the National NISOA Referee title.
Today, when not busy with overseeing the Los Angeles Premier League, he has been granted special permission by the board to moonlight as a NCAA Division One referee. He was rewarded for his consistent and solid judgement on the field with a selection to participate in the 2005 NCAA Division One Men's College Cup, held at SAS Soccer Park in Cary, North Carolina, December 9-11, 2005. Adding to this honor was his repeat selection for the 2006 NCAA Men's College Cup at the Robert R. Hermann Stadium in St. Louis, Missouri, December 1-3, 2006. For an unprecedented third consecutive time, he was summoned for the 2007 NCAA Men's College Cup on December 14th-16th, again at SAS Soccer Park in Cary, North Carolina (now known as WakeMed Soccer Park). In this tournament, he was assigned to the center for the tense semi-final game between the two great ACC rivals, Virginia Tech and eventual national champion Wake Forest University.
He is also considered one of the best NCAA Division 1 referees in the United States. He has consistently been requested to officiate at the NCAA DIVISION 1 FINAL FOUR championships many times in the past 6 years. In December 2010, he will have been to his 5th NCAA DIVISION 1 FINAL FOUR Championship as one of the referees. Every year, only 6 referees, from among the 130,000 in the United States receive this honor. Alex's 5th time in 6 years is an unprecedented accomplishment in refereeing. Alex is a legend.
