Players in the North American Three Hockey League come from all corners of the country and around the globe–last year alone the NA3HL boasted players from Canada, the Czech Republic, Sweden, and Slovakia, among others–and when they arrive in Bryan-College Station TX. they need a place to live during the season.
This is where host families–or billets–come in, performing the incredibly vital job of providing RoadRunners hockey players with a place to live while these young men chase their dream of playing ice hockey at the collegiate and professional levels.
Housing families invite these RoadRunner players into their homes to be a part of their family for seven to eight months out of the year. In turn the players, age 16-20, take part in many aspects of normal family life with their billets, from family meals to taking on active “big brother” roles at times with their younger billet brothers and sisters in their homes away from home.
The unique bonds your family will form with the player(s) you house will last a lifetime. It is not uncommon for players, years after their time in the league, to keep in close contact with their former billet family: keeping them informed of their collegiate, professional and family lives and, in many cases, even inviting their former billets to their weddings!
It is easy to become a housing family for RoadRunners Hockey, with a few requirements. The Team only asks that you provide a separate bedroom and daily meals for each player. Housing families are compensated $350 per player per month to cover grocery expenses. Players provide their own transportation and cell phones. In compliance with NA3HL rules, all housing families must pass a criminal background check.
Please help our players to become a part of your family while they pursue of playing hockey at the next level.
