WHAT PEOPLE SAY ABOUT BILLET BETTER
“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
“These forms are concise so the intent is unmistakable, but everything is fair and cordial. These are going to prevent the headaches we’ve had in past seasons.” — G.D., Billet Mom, Massachusetts
“What a great way to break the ice and make sure our home is respected without the awkwardness.”
— T.S., Billet Mom, British Columbia
“Working out billet situations is the first thing that comes up in our season and honestly, the last thing teams want to worry about. Can’t wait to put this into practice—great idea.”
—S.S., Coach, California
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.
