BILLETING WITH THE HAWKS
Billeting is a very rewarding way to assist the Hawks. You, as a Billet, will welcome a Hawk into your home, and give them the opportunity to live in a caring environment as they pursue their hockey goals.
The Players are expected to become a member of the household, responsible to help in daily chores (taking out garbage, shoveling the sidewalk, etc), to clean their own rooms, do their own laundry, and manage their own meals when the situation requires. These young men also have a strict schedule set by the Coach, which includes practices, workouts, game day routines, and in some cases, either attending school classes, or working part-time. The Coach sets the curfew which every player must abide by.
As a Billet, you will have the support and guidance of Head Coach, Tad Kozun, and Billet Co-ordinator, Tina Haluke, to answer any questions or issues which may arise.
