Milwaukee Jr Admirals Billet Coordinator
2018 - 2019 BILLET HOST FAMILIES NEEDED:
The Milwaukee Junior Admirals (MJA) rosters include elite level players from outside of the greater Milwaukee region and even the state of Wisconsin. To allow these players to take advantage of the hockey opportunity while with MJA, they require housing assistance from families within the community to serve as billet families.
This concept involves local host families providing a home to out-of-state players for the hockey season. The billet program also allows these young men to complete their high school educations, take college preparatory classes and/or obtain part-time employment in the local community while pursuing the next step in their hockey careers.
Moving away from home is one of the hardest aspects of being an elite level hockey player. As a result, we strive to find homes that provide a positive family environment to help alleviate such inherent anxieties. Our players, in turn, are expected to embrace the challenges of moving into a new household and become actively involved with the family that has so generously welcomed them into their home.
By opening up your house and heart to a player, you are providing a young man with the opportunity to achieve his dreams.The billeting experience, more often than not, is one that is as rewarding for the host family as it is for the player you are taking in for the hockey season. Many lifelong friendships between families are forged through the tradition of hosting a player.
Please review the Billet Program Standards and Frequently Asked Questions below. If you are interested in hosting a player or simply learning more about becoming a host family, you may fill out the Billet Family Application or contact us via email or the phone number listed below.
We value the importance of the billet families who open their homes to our players and appreciate the efforts made by the entire family in making our players' transition and pursuits easier. The Milwaukee Junior Admirals program, the players, and their families appreciate the commitment, generosity and dedication of our billet families.
