Jag kan helt ärligt säga att några av de roligaste minnena från min hockeykarriär hämtar jag från sommarlägrerna i Dalarna. Just därför är jag så grymt laddad över att kunna meddela att vi i sommar kommer att starta upp en högklassig hockeyskola som möjliggör för fler barn och ungdomar att få uppleva ett läger. Vi har lyckats dra ner priset till 1500kr och alla är välkomna! Anmälan börjar i februari men man kan redan idag intresseanmäla sig på www.dalakraft.se/hockeyskola ?? . I can honestly say that some of my most memorable moments in hockey is all the summercamps and tournaments back home in Sweden as a young kid. With that said Im very pleased and excited to announce that this summer were starting a summer hockeycamp for only 150$. We want to bring more kids to hockey and hopefully this is one step towards that!??
