Nepean Raiders Jr A Billets needed

From the Nepean Raiders Jr A Team

The Nepean Raiders Jr A Hockey Team are looking for billet/host families for the 2023-24 season!

Our players come from a mixture of local as well as many different parts of Canada and the United States and need somewhere to live while they pursue their hockey and educational dreams.

Billet families play a crucial part in 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. Finally, 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.

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 the Steve Yzerman Arena for the 2023-24 season!

It's a great experience and the Nepean Jr A Raiders have been a staple in our community since the 1970s.

If you or someone you know are interested in becoming a billet family, please contact the team at
