Where do junior hockey players spend the most hours? Not the ice. Not the bus. It’s with a billet family. And a good billet home can make or break a junior hockey experience.
Set billet home expectations, cover your bases with legal docs, and prevent potential billet probs. We did the bagger on busywork so adults can rest easy. And players can eat.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY ABOUT BILLET BETTER
“What a great way to break the ice and make sure our home is respected without the awkwardness.”
— T.S., Billet Mom, British Columbia
“This is a GREAT tool for organizing billeting.”
— R.W., Billet Coordinator, Ontario
“I loved making our player part of the family. But when an agency called me to collect on the medical bills he had here? Not so much. It worked out, but next time I’ll feel better having all the right backup in place. Billet Better is brilliant.”
—C.A., Billet Mom, Colorado
“Getting contact info and checklists for medical insurance, etc. has been invaluable! I think it made our player’s parents feel at ease that we were on top of these details.”
— H.B., Billet Mom, Chicago
WHAT'S BILLETING, ANYWAY?
Billeting is a midget or junior hockey player's home away from home. Literally. Super-nice people in the community volunteer to house these skilled (and smelly) up-and-comers for a 6-month-ish season, sometimes a school year. Playing for a great team away from home can help take their game to the next level—often college, semi-pro, or even The Show. That's where billet families (and lifetime friendships) come in.
It's also where questions arise. How much does a billet family get paid? What does that include? Should a hockey player expect to help around the house? Commandeer the family TV? Bring girls over after curfew? Is there a curfew?
Umm... This is what Billet Better packages are all about.
