Each season the the Powassan Voodoos will need to recruit talented hockey players who show great potential to play at the Junior level. In order to take advantage of this great opportunity, the players need families willing to share their homes and become a “Home Away from Home” for them. The importance of a billet family to the Voodoos organization is immeasurable.
We are striving to develop a group of billet families that will continually be this stable home while our players are part of the team. Having these billet familiies will allow us to draw talented players from all over Canada and the United States. These boys range in age from 16 to 20, will be attending high school, college or university and may hold part time jobs while they live in our city and represent our team while pursuing their hockey dreams.
In most cases, very strong bonds are made between the player and his billet family as well as the player’s family. These relationships will often carry on for years after the player has graduated from the team. Often billet families can be seen following “their” player in his future career in college, semi-pro or pro. Our players will be great role models for younger children in the billet home demonstrating hard work and determination to achieve tough goals.
