The Selkirk Steelers Junior ‘A’ Hockey Club is seeking Billet Families for the upcoming 2015-2016 Season. Becoming a Billet Family has become a long standing tradition in junior hockey and provides opportunities to junior aged players ranging in age from 16 to 20-years-old.
“We are very fortunate to have had some terrific billet families in the past that have provided outstanding care to our players. In addition, many of these young players get excited to fit in and become a real part of the community by visiting schools, assisting minor hockey teams and delivering Christmas hampers during the holiday season” said Selkirk Steelers General Manager David Obirek
Becoming a Billet Family to a junior hockey aged player carries lasting rewards. In many cases, long lasting relationships are developed even beyond a player’s junior career. These families also provide a caring home atmosphere and can become role models and extended family members.
Individuals or Families that are interested in billeting a player(s) for the upcoming season are asked to contact Billet Coordinators Don and Marlene Kartinen at firstname.lastname@example.org.
