One of the many important components that make up a successful football club are the Billets. These people open there homes to the young athletes, giving them a stable and secure home away from home. There are many long lasting friendships that develop between players and their billet families. Athletes who play for the Kamloops Broncos Football Club stay in billets homes during the season, which runs from late July to the end of October.
Our coaching staff works hard at identifying young men with not only football talent, but long moral and ethical values as well. For the most part, our players are good people and you should expect the players to be respectful and helpful in your presence and in your home.
During the day the players are kept busy with practices and conditioning in the afternoon.
When a player arrives at your home, it is important that they know your house rules. Clearly define your expectations and ask the player for his expectations of you and your home.
The Billet Coordinators along with the coaching staff try to make the best fit with a family as possible (i.e. kids, pets, allergies, etc.). It’s a good idea to touch base with the player’s parents and establish a relationship with them to gain an understanding of what should be expected of their son.
IMPORTANT: The key to a successful billeting experience is GOOD COMMUNICATION. This means with all parties involved; Billets, Players, Parents, Billet Coordinator and Coaches. If problems arise, they should be addressed immediately. Your first contact should be the Billet Coordinator(s). The Billet Coordinator will try to resolve the issue quickly and may get the coaches involved if need be. Please respect this ‘Chain Of Command’ as our coaching staff is usually very busy throughout the year.
