The Peterborough Petes Billet Family Program plays a major role in our team's success both on and off the ice. It takes special people to open their homes and hearts to our players and we take the utmost care to ensure our players are placed in environments that are conducive to care, understanding and safety. The Petes Organization works diligently with Sergeant Walter Diclemente of the Peterborough Lakefield Community Police Service to ensure our players are in a suitable housing environment.
We ask that our players be treated like any other member of the billet family. It is important that the player respect the rules of his host family and the host family respect the rules of the hockey club. The values and principles for success that are essential to become a member of the Peterborough Petes will be demanded at the rink, in the home, in the community and in school.
The above guidelines are designed to benefit you but are subject to change. We appreciate your valuable contribution to the Hockey Club.
Expectations of the players when billeted:
In reality, not every player/billet match will be met with success. Sometimes expectations/chemistry might be lacking and the player requests to be moved or the billets request a change. If this happens we will make our best attempt towards making the necessary changes to ensure that everyone is happy and comfortable. Communication regarding this is very important and must be addressed.
