Forsberg Hockey Tradition:

If you follow hockey, you probably know of a very popular hockey star, Peter Forsberg.  Peter Forsberg plays for the Colorado Avalanche and  he also lead the Swedish National Team to a Olympic Gold metal a few years ago.

We naturally wanted to continue the Forsberg hockey tradition, so we enrolled Parker, Trevor, and Jasmine in a hockey/skating program.  Actually, Jocelyn enrolled them into a program since she was into skating in a big way as a kid.  Later, you will see how she is equally intense when it comes down to her own children success in hockey.

So we embarked upon a new program.  Several hundreds dollars later, my kids are dressed with new everything (helmets, gloves, pants, elbow pads, and new skates.)

Here are a few photos of Parker, Trevor and a farther below is a link to separate pages about Jasmine and Jocelyn.

Ready for a brawl - fortunately, fighting is not part of the standard instructional program.
