Become A Billet Family
The Raider Family has always been very fortunate with how genorous the community of Nepean has been to them. This is most evidently seen through our billet family program.
Each year, many families are kind enough to give our players a chance to get a good night rest, eat a nice home cooked meal and allow them the opportunity to play towards the dream of becoming a National Hockey League Player. The Raiders have had several players go on to play NCAA Division 1 Hockey, get drafted, and go on to play in the NHL. Players such as Francis Marotte & Kenneth Niel have had local families open their hearts and their homes for a few months. To this day many of these players still stay in touch with their housing mothers and fathers.
We are always looking for new families within Nepean/Barrhaven who would like to reach out and become a billet family. If you are interested in receiving more information, please contact our GM Randy Watt (613) 769-7751
