The Dryden GM Ice Dogs will hit the ice in the fall, but ahead of the 2021/2022 season some players are in need of housing and support.
Organizers are looking for billet families to provide a safe, healthy and happy home away from home as they play throughout the season.
Billet homes receive:
-Monetary compensation approximately $400 per player, per month based on which option the home chooses.
-1 season ticket pass per player (limit of 2).
-Invitations to Christmas party, Awards Banquet and any other team events that are put on.
-Reserved seating at home games.
Expectations for players and billet homes:
-That players be welcomed and treated as a family member.
-Players respect the people and property where they stay.
-Food and snacks be provided with the monthly billeting money.
-Billet homes are required to follow team rules such as curfew and player commitments.
-Players are required to follow team rules as well as the rules set out by their billet home.
