Each season the Battlefords North Stars bring players to the team from across the country and we want to welcome them in the best way possible. The players need billet families willing to share their homes and take them in as part of the family.
For many of the players, this may be their first time away from home and will be in need of a stable living environment for their move to the Battlefords. Part of our commitment to our players and their parents is to provide them with a good home.
To help with the expense of housing a player, the organization provides the billet family with $450 per month/per player in grocery cards. For families who are willing and able to accept a 2nd player, we will provide $300 in grocery cards for the 2nd player. Each billet home will receive free access to home games for the regular season. There is a two player maximum per billet household.
We invite all those interested in billeting (this includes previous billets) to The Civic Centre- upper auditorium on Wed Aug 14th from 6:00-7:00 pm. Anyone wishing to billet this season must have a representative from their home attend. If you absolutely cannot attend, kindly contact Kyle Kellgren or Brayden Klimosko.
What is a billet family all about?
The player needs a room of his own. Players are expected to provide their own personal care items, and the billet family is required to have healthy food available for the player for the duration of his time with the family. Our billet families should be positive ambassador’s for the North Stars Organization.
How long is the billet family commitment?
Time with each player will vary. Some are with the billet family during the fall training camp and pre-season only; others require a home for the duration of the hockey season. Depending on the season, this may be from mid-August to the end of May. Most players will go home during the holiday breaks or as the schedule permits.
If you are interested in becoming apart Battlefords North Stars billet family and feel you would be a great ambassador for the team please contact our billet coordinator, Kyle Kellgren.
