Billet Families Needed This Month for 2015-16 Season

The Thunder are currently looking for Families to open up their home to our 2015-16 Thunder players. 

Billet families play a vital role in the success of the Drayton Valley Thunder.  Without them, our team would not be able to operate as most of the boys that play on the team are from out of town. Therefore, we are always looking for new billet families.

Billeting can be a very exciting and rewarding experience for all those willing to open up their homes to dedicated players of the Drayton Valley Thunder. Many families who have billeted in the past usually look back at their experience with fond memories. In fact, the majority still keep in contact with the players that lived with them as they move on in life, either through professional hockey or another career choice.

Whether you are new or a long time resident of Drayton Valley, billeting is a great way to meet people. You will become as involved with the hockey organization as you want to be. Season tickets are also given to the family so you can enjoy watching your boy(s).

Each billet family is also paid a monthly amount to offset the cost of food. You would be responsible to provide each boy at least one good meal and have the food available so they could cook the other meals themselves if necessary. Chores around the house are usually discussed between each player and billet family.

Anyone interested in a rewarding experience by billeting a Thunder player, is encouraged to contact:

Director Krista Colford at 780-542-9294(h) or 780-898-2903 (c) or  Coach Mike Mueller at 780-542-7846 or
