Ice Mavericks Host Family Program
At the Ice Mavericks program we are proud to say that we have an extensive billet program to support those players that come to play for us from around the world. We have found through our years of experience that student athletes have a much better overall experience when living with a billet family vs living in a dorm setting. Due to this, all of our u16 and u18 players will be placed in a billet home where they will have the luxury of being in a caring environment that acts like a home away home. Players will quickly immerse themselves into the families and community while establishing lifelong friendships.
What is a Host Family or "Billeting"?
Billet or Billeting is another word for host family for those that are not familiar with billeting OR for those that may want to become a billet family. For many youth hockey players, leaving home between the ages of 15 -18 years old to play outside of their hometown, state, or even native country is very normal. When this occurs, for many players it will be their first time away from home, and because of that, they will need a stable and comforting living environment to stay at during the duration of the season. The billet experience is an incredibly rewarding one, that results in life long friendships and memories that will last a life time. If you would like to learn more about our billet program or would if you would like to become a billet family, please see below.
