Billet Families Wanted!


The CT ROUGH RIDERS EHL team is looking for a few “Billet” Families!
We need a few local families willing to provide a surrogate home to out-of-state/country players who are joining us to play in one of the most competitive leagues in North America.
Hosts will receive a monetary stipend to offset some of the basic costs (i.e. food)
Players will take their game to the next level, while completing their high school education or take college level courses, and/or obtain part time employment in the local community.
If you are interested in becoming a host family and in helping these talented young men in their pursuit, 
please contact Nancy James, the CT RoughRiders billet/housing coordinator at:
