Billeting a Player
The Jr. Gulls are in need of billet “Host” families for the upcoming Hockey Season. We have players coming from out of town/state and even out of the country to play for our Jr. Gulls AAA teams. Billeting is a rewarding experience for both the families and the players. You would be providing an opportunity for these players to follow their dreams of taking hockey to the next level and possibly developing a career in hockey.
Here are some questions you may have before deciding if billeting is for you:
What are the host family’s responsibilities?:
Provide the player with a “room” for them to sleep and do homework. Player can share a room with another player. Host family is to provide meals for the player. The player can and should make their own breakfast and lunches. If the player is unable to sit down to dinner with the family due to practices, family should keep leftovers for the player to heat up when he gets home.
What are the player’s responsibilities?
The players will have their own personal care items, cell phone, laptops and provide for their own transportation. They must follow all the team and house rules and show respect for other family members. They must keep their room/space clean and do their own laundry.
How long does the billet season last?
Typically the season last from mid-August to March. Depending on how far the team goes in the playoffs.
Is there compensation to the host family?
Yes, there is a $450 monthly billeting check that will help offset the cost of meals and other expenses.
Can a family host more than one player?
If you are interested in billeting another player or know someone that is, please email the the Jr Gulls for further information.
