Billet families are needed for the Canmore Eagles for the 2017-18 season.

Billet Families come in all shapes and sizes and being a hockey fan is not a requirement! Hosting a player in your home gives the opportunity to Junior Hockey players that range between the ages of 16 to 20 to live in our beautiful mountain community while playing for the Canmore Eagles. Players, while pursuing their hockey goals, will also be completing high school, enrolled in post-secondary education, or working part-time locally. In addition to those responsibilities they also volunteer within the Bow Valley.

It is the mission of the Canmore Eagles to provide the coaching and mentoring on and off the ice that will allow players to achieve and surpass their goals in hockey and education. Being a billet parent is an integral part of helping our players and our organization accomplish that. The benefits of being a Billet Family not only directly benefit your family but also the Bow Valley Community.
