LLOYD AYERS
HEAD COACH 

Growing up in Central Washington, Lloyd was highly competitive in many sports. He began his hockey coaching career in 1999, teaching the basics of hockey fundamentals to young players in youth hockey. From the beginning, he instilled his philosophy of developing both the character and the skills of each player on and off the ice. Using the American Development Model (ADM), Lloyd’s coaching career progressed rapidly. After a few years of coaching in Idaho Falls, Lloyd moved to Boise with his wife and two sons, bringing his coaching success with him.

During a beginning stint coaching Boise’s Timberline High School Junior Varsity, his coaching skills were recognized, and he quickly moved on to coaching Timberline Varsity as well. While helping coach both teams, Lloyd continued to ascend through the ranks of the USA Hockey Coaching Program, eventually reaching a Level 5, the highest possible level within USA Hockey.

Lloyd became the Head Coach of Boise’s Timberline High School Varsity Program in 2009 and has remained with the team since. While at the helm of Timberline’s JV and Varsity teams, he led both teams to multiple championships, including a Junior Varsity City Championship in 2012, two Varsity District Championships in 2015 and 2016, and a Varsity State Championship in 2014. During his tenure as Head Coach of Timberline High School’s two programs, Lloyd also coached Youth Travel Hockey in Boise. He led the Treasure Valley Hawks Bantam, 16U, and 18U to State Championship Titles in 2012, 2014, and 2016, respectively. The Level 5 Coach took two of these teams to National Tournaments finishing 3rd in the 2015 Tier II 18U championships in Michigan.

TODD CUNNINGHAM
ASSISTANT COACH 

Todd is a USA Hockey Level 4 Certified Coach and brings in many years of coaching experience, having been involved with House, High School and Travel Hockey at all age levels since 1999. He’s began coaching at the House Level in Boise in 2000, coaching many teams at all levels. In 2008, he became an Assistant Coach for the Meridian High School Junior Varsity Team, and continued coaching high school hockey until 2016. He began coaching with the Treasure Valley Amateur Hockey Association in 2009 and continued through 2016. During his TVAHA coaching tenure, he led the Treasure Valley Hawks to four State Championships: 2010 Pee Wee, 2012 Bantam A, 2014 U18 Midget B and 2016 U18 Midget A. The U18 Midget teams went on to the National Tournament in 2015 and 2016, taking 3rd place in 2015.

Todd’s coaching experience will add new dimensions to the oversight of Boise State Hockey. During his years of coaching hockey, he coordinated with staff coaches to determine needs for individual and team improvement, and coordinated video breakdown for in-game analysis. Todd has worked with all facets of the game; offense, defense, power play and penalty kills. His coaching philosophy is simple, “Always work on basic hockey skills, have respect for all aspects of the game, be loyal to your team, work as a single unit and have fun.” With his knowledge and passion for the game, along with his commitment to develop player skills, Todd looks to effectively assist in leading and motivating the Boise State Men’s Hockey Team, both on and off the ice.
