Billets Needed for the 2024/25 Season

by Tommy Young

NEPEAN, ON – The Nepean Raiders Jr A Hockey Team is looking for billet families for the 2024-25 season!

The goal of our organization is to create the most competitive on-ice product we can, and billets are a HUGE part of that. Our players come from many different parts of Canada and the United States and need somewhere to live while they pursue their hockey dreams.

Billet families help play a crucial part in developing champions on and off the ice, and helping our players adjust to life as a Jr A hockey player on and off the ice. Our players range between 16 and 20 years of age, with many moving away from home for the first time as well as attending a new high school or post-secondary school, and we strive to help create a welcoming and comforting environment for all. If you have young kids that love hockey themselves , billeting represents an opportunity to give them an older brother to play with, learn from, and look up to.

Here is a link with some additional helpful information regarding billeting:

The Nepean Raiders are seeking billet families with:
– A love for the game of hockey
– A patient, kind, and friendly home environment
– A private bedroom with closet space, a desk and chair, as well as internet access
– A clean, smoke-free house
– Access to laundry and parking (for players with vehicles)
– Nutritious meals and snacks available
– Support for team policies and rules including curfews, academic standards, and community engagement

Billet families will not have to provide:
– Rides to and from games, practices, school, or other events
– Medical appointment bookings
– Storage for hockey gear at their homes

Billet families will be financially compensated on a monthly basis, and will also receive two (2) season tickets to all Raiders home games at Yzerman Arena for the 2024-25 season!
