What makes a great Billet family?

Being a billet family takes sensitivity and patience. For many of these young players, it is often their first time away from home, combined with having to adjust to playing and learning a higher level of hockey. In addition, they face the challenges of a new school and community. You must understand that the player is away from their family and that this player is a unique individual, and that getting used to a new environment can be tough. The best way to overcome this awkward transition is for you to share your lifestyle in a positive, safe, and caring manner.


What the Billet Family provides:

  • Private Accommodations: a private bedroom with a closet (and/or basement suite) including suitable bathroom facilities.
  • Nutritious Meals
  • Positive and Safe Atmosphere: a patient, caring, friendly home environment.
  • Guidance and Attention: the same guidance and attention you would want for your children. Working with the team management to enforce team rules such as curfews, helping players learn skills that will enable them to become more responsible off the ice.
