The Perfect Skate

Fast paced, Even Play, Laughs and Victories

Drop In Hockey Made Easy

We use technology to build a better skate, all in search of the “perfect skate!”

The Full Bench Ice Time System was created by hockey players, for hockey players.

The Team

Dave Crabill, Cheif Visionary

Growing up, Dave had the biggest driveway, and street hockey was the game in South Jersey as the Broad Street Bullies won a couple of cups.

To get a game required the old school system of calling guys, as you can see in this pic my mom took, New Years Day 1977.

Dave applied his knowledge of marketing and technology to the task of creating a better way to run a sheet of ice. Plus, he had some smart guys to do the coding.

Jeff Dennings, Cheif Coder

Jeff has some serious OCD issues that are a major benefit to the team. Jeff digs into the details and system flow. He helps Dave run the Eclectic Hockey League on Sundays and has help with drop in skates, so he understands the needs. Countless hours of programming have gone into this development. He also works as the SEO Manager for Eclectic Sales & Creative Marketing, LLC.

Mike Crabill, Technical Analyst & Security Expert

Mike’s body is rejecting him, he is in bad physical shape, but his mind is sharp and he has the intelligence to worm out those hairy details that hold projects up. As an Air Force veteran and former avionics technician, Mike has an extensive technical background and capability.

Sue Crabill, Cheif BS Detector

Big thanks to my wife Sue, who manages the registration table during the week! 

She will take your money, and tell you where to go. Both skills she honed at home! (LOL) now I’m in trouble!

Be nice to Sue and buy a t-shirt or jersey to keep her busy!

The Full Bench Ice Time System is a result of three years of successful testing. With just the right amount of structure, we end up with a much better skate, and if you are a skater, then you know the difference between a good or bad skate.

With the launch of our app, it is easier than ever to get on a skate and to organize the skates.

That little bit of structure starts with the rules.

Ten Rules To A Perfect Skate

  • Two Goalies
  • Limit on number of skaters
  • Organizer brings pucks
  • Organizer brings water
  • Black & White spare jerseys to even sides
  • No Checking
