The 2016-201 season just came to a close, but the Kelowna Rockets are already looking ahead to 2017-2018 – just not in the way you might think.

The team is seeking out “a few good homes” where players can stay next season.

With the team in need of more billet families, the Rockets billet coordinator Kris Mallette is starting the search early, looking for a family willing to take in a young hockey player for a few months.

“Being a billet family for the Kelowna Rockets is a great experience and it’s rewarding,” said Mallette. “You play a big role in the lives of these young men, and in turn play a big role for the Rockets organization.”

If you live in the Kelowna Secondary School catchment (Glenmore and North Glenmore, South East Kelowna, Crawford Estates or Casorso Road), or in the Black Mountain School catchment and are interested in opening your home to a Rockets player, you can become a Rockets billet family.

For an information package drop by the Kelowna Rockets office or contact Mallette at [email protected] or call 250-979-0860.
