Becoming a Vernon Vipers Billet Family

For many of us, our choice to move away from the family home was a decision made when we were in our late teens, or even twenties. If you think back, you will remember a lot of the anxiety that went along with this move. For a Junior A hockey player who leaves their family home to follow their dreams, they are not just leaving family and friends behind to go to a new city or town, but they are still expected to perform both on and off the ice in their new community. Without caring billet families to ease this transition, our young athletes, and future stars might never make the decisions they do to pursue their dreams.

 

The Billet Family experience in most cases becomes a lasting relationship between the player, the players family and the billet family. Our hockey players in the past have served as great role models not only in their community, but for younger family members who can learn from these players dedication and sacrifices to obtain their goals. Often the billet family through this experience have gained a ‘new family member’ who’s career they can monitor, be it at the college, semi pro or even professional level.

If you are interested in becoming a billet for a Vipers hockey player, please contact the Vernon Vipers office (250-542-6022) 

The importance of billet families to the Vernon Vipers Hockey Club is immeasurable. Simply put, without the billet families we could not put a team on the ice. They provide an environment of support and trust. The Vernon Vipers appreciate the commitment, generosity and dedication of these fantastic people.

Thanks to all the Vernon Vipers billets for all their help
