Billet Information

The Navs are currently seeking Temporary and Full Time Billet Homes

The North Peace Navigators Billet Family Program plays a major role in our team's success both on and off the ice. Being a Billet Family is both a wonderful and rewarding experience.  It takes special people to open their homes and hearts to our players and we take the utmost care to ensure our players are placed in environments that are conducive to care, understanding and safety. This experience is a great way to get involved in the community, as well as develop some very special bonds with our Navigator players and their families. 

We ask that our players be treated like any other member of the billet family.  For many of the players, this will be their first time away from home and they are in need of a stable living environment for their move to Peace River.   It is important that the player respect the rules of his host family and the host family respect the rules of the hockey club. The values and principles for success that are essential to become a member of North Peace Navigators will be demanded at the rink, in the home, in the community and in school.

In the billet homes, the players are encouraged to become involved with the family that has so generously welcomed them. As a member of the household, the players are expected to share in the daily chores as well as maintain their own rooms and do their own laundry. On occasion, the players may have to look after their own meals, if the billets are away.

The players will have a very structured schedule for the entire time they will be placed in your home.  Some players may still be in school and others are encouraged to find part-time employment. The team has a set curfew that all of the players need to abide by in order for our team to be successful. 

Below we have included the guidelines for billets for the upcoming season.

Billeting Guidelines and Rules

Billeting Guidelines and Rules

The following guidelines have been set and agreed on by both players and management. 

  1. Abuse of any substance will not be tolerated.  The hockey team enforces curfew and rules on alcohol and banned substances; this is addressed to the entire team during training camp.
  2. Curfews are for the benefit of these athletes. Players are to be at their own billet homes by 10:30pm.     Nights before a game, curfew is set at 10:00pm. On home game nights, all players are to be at their own billet home by 12 midnight. Away games, the players are to be home within 1/2 hour of arrival back at the rink. Special nights will be given off by management.
  3. Leaving Peace River is not allowed. Players must get permission from management and notify billets well in advance.
  4. Players, if registered, must attend all classes, either high school or university, including after away games. Players should give billets a timetable of their classes.
  5. Players who are not in school, are encouraged to find a part time job.
  6. Meals should be wholesome and varied. Flexibility on behalf of billets and players is needed in this area. Players do not need to eat steak everyday!!!  Billets should talk with the player and determine his preferences in foods and time to eat. Pre-game meals are important, on average, players should eat 3 hours before a game, but this may vary. If no one is home and the player cannot prepare his own meal then plans to reheat a meal should be made.
  7. Players are to inform their billets well in advance if they will not be home for a meal.
  8. There are to be no visitors at billets home after curfew hours or at any time unless proper arrangements and understandings have been made by the players and their billets.  Girlfriends are not to be allowed in the player’s bedrooms.  ***NO SLEEP OVERS***
  9. Support, communication and understanding are vital keys to success. Make sure you talk to your player about expectations. Communication is the key to success and things that are not acceptable in your home may have been in theirs. Players shall live by their billets house rules. Unless these problems are addressed, peeves may fester into larger problems. (ie: shower use, telephone usage, dishes, shoes in the house, tidiness, etc.)
  10. Players should take the initiative to make their own meals, do their own laundry and volunteer around the house when billets require assistance.
  11. Players and billets should discuss the meals best suited for both. Players should eat a balanced diet. High carbohydrate, low fat diets are ideal. Vegetables are important to maintain proper tissue and cell repair.
  12. Arrange long distance phone calls with your player, as payment will be their responsibility.
  13. The most important rule is that of common sense and good communication. Respect is a two-way program.
  14.  Billets Families will receive payment for housing, receive season tickets for their household in which our player would stay and discounts at Kal Tire.
  15. If you are going away for vacation, please notify the Billet Coordinator and accommodations will be provided for your player.

The above guidelines are designed to benefit you but are subject to change. We appreciate your valuable contribution to the Hockey Club.
