Billet families play a pivotal role in the lives of our players, providing them with a nurturing home away from home during their season with us. Your support and care create an environment where they can thrive both on and off the ice.

At Victoria Cougars, we deeply value our billet families and recognize how integral their generosity and hospitality are to the success of our team.

Interested in becoming a billet family? We are always looking for welcoming homes to join our community. By opening your doors, you’ll not only enrich the lives of our players but also become an essential part of our team’s journey.

Join us today and make a difference in the lives of aspiring hockey players. Contact our Billet Coordinator using the email form below to learn more about this rewarding opportunity.


  • A welcoming home that a player will feel comfortable in
  • A private room with a bed and good mattress
  • A private desk/workspace for homework
  • Use of laundry facilities and detergent
  • Nutritious meals and snacks that support players' dietary needs
  • The same guidance and attention you would want for your own children

Billet families also serve as authority figures, role models and extended family to their assigned player(s). While hosts receive a monetary honorarium to help off-set some of the costs, the true rewards are in the lasting relationships that are developed. If you choose to become a part of our family, further details and information will be provided to you in our “Parent and Player Information Package”.


  • Must follow all team and host family house rules
  • Contribute to a clean home, this includes keeping a tidy room, doing their own laundry, and contributing to chores where applicable
  • Communicating their needs and schedule with the host family 
  • Be respectful in all interactions with the host family

Note: All successful applicants will be subject to a Criminal Record Check.
