Every season the Rockets seek local families to be billet families. What is a billet family you ask? Billet families are the backbone of Junior Hockey. Every season young men between 16 and 20 years old come to the Rockets from all over the USA, Canada, and Europe to continue their dream of playing hockey at the next level. Enter the billet family. Billet families provide a caring, supportive, family environment to be the home away from home for each of our players. Billeting can be a very exciting and rewarding experience for those willing to open up their homes. I know from personal experience – I have billeted boys the last 4 years and I can share that the experience was a wonderful one for my family. We will always consider these young men a part of our family. Also, I was once a billet player and I will always consider my host family my second family.
The player pays you $500 a month and these players have all been vetted and are special young men. You are not responsible for driving them to or from the rink. They are busy and are all young men who are looking to move onto to play college and professional hockey.
