THE ACES ARE LOOKING FOR BILLET FAMILIES

With the season fast approaching the Windsor Aces are looking for billet families to host a player for the upcoming 2017-18 season. Billet families play an important role in the lives of these young men and has become a longstanding tradition in Junior Hockey. While pursuing their hockey opportunities, many players are also completing high school, enrolled in post-secondary education and/or work part-time jobs. Billet families also serve as authority figures, role models and extended family to their assigned player(s). While hosts receive a monetary honorarium to help off-set some of the costs of expenses, the true rewards are in the lasting relationships that are developed.

Billet Families Provide:

  • A patient, caring and friendly home atmosphere.
  • A separate room for the player, furnished much like a dorm room (bed, desk & chair, clothing storage).
  • Nutritious meals including breakfast, lunch and dinner (or the ability for the player to make his own meals).
  • The same guidance and attention you would want for your own children (given they were in the same situation).

Billeted Players:

  • Must follow all team and host family house rules and show respect for other host family members.
  • Must take care of their room, including keeping it clean and doing their own laundry.
  • Transportation to and from practices and games, unless other arrangements are made with the host family.
  • If not attending class, players are encouraged to seek part-time work and/or be involved in the community.

Note - All successful applicants will be subject to a Child Abuse Registry Check and Criminal Records Background Check.

If you are interested in becoming a billet family or require more information, please do not hesitate to contact our billet coordinator.
