Red Wings Billet Families

Billet families are an important resource to junior hockey teams across North America.

The Fredericton Red Wings are currently looking for billet families in the Fredericton and surrounding areas who are willing to opening their doors to one of our players. Billet families provide a support system and safe home for players throughout the season. Whether it’s preparing nutritious meals or simply offering a space for players to escape the rigours of hockey, billet families are a crucial element to the team’s on-ice success. By becoming a billet, you will become a part of players’ lives that will last long past their hockey career.

As the new season begins, some players will be moving away from home for the first time. Settling into a new home will have a lifelong impact on their playing careers, at whatever level that ends, as well as their development in everyday society.

If you are interested  in becoming a Billet family please contact Ross Gorman at ross.gorman@frederictonredwings.com
