Become a Billet
Each season the New England Wolves will recruit talented players who show great potential to play at the college or pro hockey level, who do not live within a reasonable driving distance of the Merrill Fay Arena in Laconia. To take advantage of this great opportunity, the players need families willing to share their homes, and become a “home away from home” for them. Many families have done this for dozens of players from many countries and states.
WHAT IS EXPECTED OF THE HOST FAMILY?
The player needs a room of his own, or can share with a team member. He needs a bed, bureau, closet space and internet availability. Players are expected to provide bed and bath linens, personal care items, cell phones, and take care of their own transportation needs. The family also needs to provide the players with two meals a day: a basic breakfast that they can make on their own, and an evening meal.
WHAT IS EXPECTED OF THE PLAYERS?
The player must obey all team and house rules and show respect and consideration toward all family members. Players provide their own transportation as well as clean their own space, including laundry. They need to take care of their own belongings and contribute to your household.
HOW LONG IS A HOST FAMILY’S COMMITMENT?
Players arrive in late August, and stay till the season concludes. The team takes a break at both Thanksgiving and two weeks at Christmas/ New Years. Families will receive a monthly billeting payment for each player which is $325.00 a month. Some have found it easier to house two players as they then travel together and are company for each other. Host families have included traditional 2-parent families, single-parent families and “empty-nesters” too. All that’s really needed is the willingness to help a player pursue his dreams by providing them a “home away from home.”
