Billeting is a staple in junior hockey and plays a very important role in the lives of our players. A billet family helps ensure that players integrate into the community comfortably while reducing the stress of moving to a new city and being away from family and friends.
Being a billet is an incredibly rewarding experience; you become the player’s second family and are given the opportunity to see them grow both on the ice and off the ice. Our players and billets create long-lasting relationships that continue past the player’s WHL playing days; many keep in touch and see the players move onto college, amateur, or professional hockey leagues.
“When I started billeting, I was very hesitant and said “no” many times before I decided to give it a try. Seven years later, I have been the “other mother” to 12 SC Broncos! Being a billet mom has been an experience that I could never have imagined. These boys instantly become a part of your family and daily routine. After a few weeks, it starts to feel like they have just always been there. It truly is an experience that I can’t explain. All I can tell you is prepare your heart as each one of them will take a little piece of it when they leave. But it is worth every tear!” – Charmaine Westbury, Billet
