Calling all Families! The PAL Jr. Islanders are seeking participants for our Billet program during the 2019-2020 season. 

 

Aspiring young athletes from the Northeast and beyond are in need of a "home away from home" for our upcoming season. Predominately at the Junior level, the PAL Jr. Islanders will be seeking families that are willing and able to house one or more of our players. Through our running season of late September to April, our players will be working toward continuing their hockey careers at the NCAA level and will need secure and stable housing.

Benefits of Billeting:

Billeting a player has a number of benefits to both our players and to the families who choose to participate. On average, Billet families have seen the following outcomes from their housed player:

  • Total respect of their home and of the rules of their establishment
  • A pleasant, courteous, and helpful new family member
  • A potential role model to other children in the residence
  • A $450 monthly stipend for families to cover the cost needs of each player
  • Unique experiences for our players and families alike

What Do I Need to Billet?

What is a family expected to provide as a billet? In all cases, all we ask of our prospective billet families are the following:

  • The providing of a clean, family atmosphere for the player
  • Proper nourishment for each player billeted
  • Respect for our players equal to the respect they will give
  • Guidance for our players if needed
  • Proper Communication between Billet, Billet Family, and Staff

Our staff will keep tabs on our players on numerous occasions throughout the season, to ensure standards are being kept.

 

What Can I Expect of My Player?

 

  • Common Courtesy - Players will inform billet families about all scheduling updates within the organization.
  • Players will provide their own transportation, cell phone, and other necessities.
  • Full completion of all chores and tasks as assigned by the Billet family. 

Players living with billets will be prohibited from the following behaviors per official rules of the organization:

  • Drinking
  • Smoking
  • Tobacco Usage
  • Drug Usage
