The Knights of Meaford are now accepting host family applications for the current 2019-2020 season. These are special families whom open their doors to young men playing on the Knights; providing them with a safe living environment for their durations with the team. For many of our players, this will be their first time away from home. The Knights make it a priority to find the best possible homes in the surrounding area for our players to have success on and off the ice.
The player must adhere to all team rules and to the house rules of the billet family. He must respect all family members. To cover food expenses; players must pay the billet family $650/month to be paid on the first day of the month.
The host family is asked to provide the player with a room of his own. In addition, the billet family needs to provide the player with 3 meals a day. If the player is not home for the evening meal then the billet family is asked to grant him access to the kitchen to prepare a meal for himself.
These families must first apply to our team billet coordinator. If their application meets a team standard, the family then goes through several interview stages. Only after this process does a family have the chance to billet players. Our interview process for selecting these families ensures our players will be in a safe and secure home environment.
For those families interested in becoming a billet family, please contact Kathy Adams at firstname.lastname@example.org.
