Billet families play an important role in the lives of hockey players. Local families open up their homes and personal lives to hockey players each season and partake in the vast array of activities throughout the year. Billet families work hard to ensure that players integrate into the community smoothly and comfortably while reducing the stress of moving to a new city and being away from their family. This translates into hard work, dedication, and success on the ice, both at games and at practices.
Billet families play a critical role in the growth and development of players, and in return players are expected to show their utmost respect to their host family, their home away from home. Being a billet family is an incredibly rewarding experience; you become the players’ second family and are given the opportunity to see them grow both on and off the ice.
Players and billets create long and lasting relationships that continue past the athletes' time with SEAC; many keep in touch and see the players move onto junior, major junior, college, amateur, and professional hockey leagues.
