I have spent over 25 years working in the ice arena industry. I have traveled to over 30 countries, 45 states and have lived in 8 states. I am a skating coach, skated with Disney on Ice and play adult hockey. I spent as much time as possible backpacking and rooting on my Patriots and Red Sox!

"I'm a huge sports fanatic! There aren't many sports I haven't played or won't play! Still to do: cricket, handball, and pickleball! My favorites: hockey (of course), cycling, rugby, and soccer (although basketball, I love you, too!) I also enjoy working on bikes, currently learning some website design and programming (html, css, php, javascript, etc.), brazing and welding, and ukulele/tenor guitar!

He and his wife Kyla have 3 children ages 11, 9, and 5. Their 11-year-old daughter has been involved in the Palouse Youth Hockey Association for 5 years. Eric is an avid outdoorsman and enjoys hunting, golfing, fishing and spends the summer weekends at the family lake home in North Idaho.

Mark McGuire

Mark began playing hockey as an adult and found it a great way to keep in shape in the winter while enjoying the team camaraderie. He coached his son in youth hockey "until he was better than me." He found watching the kids develop and compete was a true joy, so making sure the youth of the area have access to a regulation sheet of ice is a personal goal. Mark hopes the community can build a new facility in the very near future to support the continued growth for all activities at the rink. In his other life, Mark is Director of the Idaho Agricultural Experiment Station at the University of Idaho and conduct research in lactation and nutrition. He enjoys the diversity of agriculture and beauty of Idaho.
