PLAYERS FROM OUT OF THE AREA – (INCLUDING FOREIGN PLAYERS) – NEED HOUSING
As we do annually, the Tampa Bay Junior Hockey Club looks to see if there are potential ‘billet’ families that would volunteer to host a foreign player or a player out of our local area and we are looking for families to host players for our upcoming 2016-17 season. These players come to our program to pursue their hockey development and college hockey aspirations and we would like to find families that are CLOSE TO FLORIDA HOSPITAL CENTER ICE.
Being a billet family is a rewarding experience and families get attached to these players and many times stay in touch for years. Our families receive $300/month to host one of our players and our season runs approximately mid-August through February or mid-March.
IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN HOSTING PLEASE CLICK ON THE “TB LOGO” OR LINK BELOW AND “COMPLETE THE INTEREST FORM”
WE WILL CONTACT YOU AND PROVIDE MORE INFORMATION ON HOW OUR BILLET PROGRAM IS STRUCTURED AND ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS YOU MAY HAVE.
We hope you will come and watch our teams this coming season!
