CHAD FORSMAN
Program Coordinator

Chad Forsman has been involved in Wyoming hockey for over fifteen years through the Park County, Casper and Douglas WAHL clubs. Chad served on the Park County Board, on the WAHL Board as an Age Director and has continued to coach and officiate throughout the state. In 2014 he started working with the Team Wyoming programs managing and coaching at the Peewee and Bantam level for B through AA teams. In 2017 Forsman, Brian Scheuber and Scott Miller teamed up to establish the Wyoming Cutthroats tournament travel team program. Forsman continued to coach through 2021 while also managing all the Wyoming Cutthroat team levels. On the coaching bench he maintained a longtime partnership with Mitch Roark and Brad Lane to help reignite the Douglas 12U/14U/18U programs while also leading Cutthroat teams. Together they won multiple banners including WAHL State Championships and Rocky Mountain Regional Silver Stick (twice), which earned them entry to International Silver Stick Tournaments. They also established the Wyoming Cutthroats Off-Season Development (ODP) program, a bi-weekly camp run each summer in Casper open to players of all ages and levels looking for development. 

Who We Are

The Cutthroats are a state-wide 12UA, 14UA, 16UA & 18UA travel team open to Wyoming players, whether they are participating on a WAHL league team or not.  Cutthroats aim to play a majority of tournaments in Denver, Salt Lake, and other regional settings while avoiding WAHL weekends for our tournaments.  Our intent is to work with WAHL and Team Wyoming to create a fun, enjoyable, yet competitive hockey environment to enhance the youth hockey experience in Wyoming. 

 

Brief History of the Club

In the summer of 2017, Bryan Scheuber, Chad Forsman and Scott Miller established the Wyoming Cutthroat hockey program. Scheuber, Forsman, and Miller coached PeeWee and Bantam Team Wyoming teams from 2014-2017. When Team Wyoming reformatted its programs and philosophy, this trio worked together to create a complementary venue for Wyoming travel hockey. 

 

The inaugural 2017-2018 Cutthroat season included 12U and 14U teams. The 12U team was coached by Forsman, Brad Lane, and Mitch Roark. The 14U team was coached by Scheuber, MIller, and Brent Berg. Forsman served as the Cutthroat manager. The club added a 16U team in 2018-2019 and an 18U team for the 2019-2020 season, as the program worked to grow Wyoming travel hockey. 

 

In the Spring of 2018 Forsman led the creation of a Wyoming Cutthroat Off-Season Development (ODP) Program based in Casper, Wyoming. This program included 10 weekends of ice from April to August with coaching sessions for 10U, 12U, 14U and 16U. Forsman was joined by coaches from the Casper area and beyond to run these player development weekends.
