11th Annual

Andy Forsberg Memorial Tournament

This is the 12th Annual Andy Forsberg Memorial Tournament. Andy passed away in 2008 after a long and courageous battle with cancer. He left behind his wife Donna and three sons Matt, Tommy & Chris.

 

A longtime Huntington resident in the Elwood School District, Andy was very involved in

Coaching Huntington area youth lacrosse and was involved in the formation of the LI

Outlaws Lacrosse Club.

 

Andy was a very special person. As an example, in a sport where emotions sometimes

get the better of coaches, parents and players, Andy was different. While very

competitive, he was always a calming influence to his fellow coaches, the players he

coached and taught and always put things in the proper perspective. He always took

time with every player he coached no matter their skill or ability and made them feel

special. It is also how he lived his life. One friend said “Andy is the man we should all be

like”.

 

After Andy’s passing, his family, friends and neighbors organized this tournament for the benefit of his children’s college education fund, The Andrew G. Forsberg Memorial Trust Fund. The tournament and Forsberg Family also donate to other charitable causes and funds.

 

We organized this as a competitive tournament with championships in every division that players, coaches and parents could all enjoy. However if you don’t like a call that an Official makes, a mistake by a player, or any of the other things that can get us all going,maybe think WWAD (What Would Andy Do) and put it in perspective.

 

We have many returning teams that have participated for many years and many newTeams in this tournament. We thank you again for your support and look forward to agreat weekend of lacrosse for all.
