Port Moody Panthers housing families help young men coming to the Tri-Cities who need a home away from home. It takes special people to open their homes to our players and we are incredibly appreciative of the care they provide our team with. Our housing families play a significant role in the team’s success, on and off the ice, as well as the personal development of our players.
Our housing families, or billets, are committed to ensuring that our players may live safely and comfortably during the hockey season, beginning with player arrival in late August and running through the conclusion of playoffs which can wrap up in early April, depending on the team’s success in the postseason.
Panthers players range in age from 16-20, and housing families act as surrogate parents for these young men during the hockey season. Housing can be a very exciting and rewarding experience for all those willing to open their homes to players who are chasing their dreams of going to college or playing in the National Hockey League. Most housing families keep in contact with their players as they move through the ranks of college and professional hockey.
Players are expected to follow all “house rules” of the family as well as adhere to the general rules and guidelines set forth by the hockey club.
Families are required to provide a player with a room and three nutritious meals a day and receive a monthly grocery stipend and tickets to all Panthers home games for each member of the household. Families are not required to provide transportation for the player.
The Panthers are looking for enthusiastic billet families willing to open their homes to these young men living away from home.
