BENEFITS OF BEING A HOST FAMILY
Similar to an exchange student program, teams are always in need of families that are willing to open their heart and home to a developing athlete. Families are interested in taking a supporting role in the player’s overall development while both get memories that will last a lifetime. Each billet family is paid a monthly housing fee by that player or their family. Housing fee covers monthly housing and three meals a day.
HOW TO BECOME A HOST FAMILY
• The first step to becoming a host family is to contact us! Our billet coordinator, Melissa Medina will be your contact and get you our Blue Ox Billet questionnaire form to fill out and go over specific player details to find the best fit for you, your family and our player. All billet family members will have to perform a “Safe Sport” USA hockey background screening check.
• This is also the perfect time to go over the ground rules and expectations that both the team and host family will work with.
• Our team places athletes with host families who provide the athlete with a caring and safe home environment. Host families are able to experience firsthand the exciting experience of elite athlete development program.
