Adam a.k.a. The Goalie, was born and raised in Glendale, Arizona, and instantly fell in love with hockey watching the Mighty Ducks and sitting in the Dog House at AWA cheering on the Yotes.

His family has season tickets for the Coyotes and attends games with his dad Rick and fiancé Sarah.
After high school, Adam attended Arizona Culinary Institute where he earned his degree and currently works as a Culinary Director for The Sundance Center in Scottsdale.

Bea has dedicated her time to volunteer with charities which support and help improve the lives of children both locally and worldwide. So, it was no surprise she jumped in with both feet when asked to join the Desert Hockey Development board. Bea’s favorite quote comes from Eleanor Roosevelt; “ The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.”
