Tahoe Icemen looking for billet families for upcoming season

The Tahoe Icemen junior hockey team is looking for billet families to house players for the upcoming hockey season. A billet family provides a home-away-from-home environment for the player.

Each player pays a monthly billet fee of $350 to the family to help cover the cost of meals and living expenses. Billet families also receive free tickets to home games for family members so they can come watch and cheer on their player.

Hosting an Iceman player a great opportunity to have a big brother for a younger family member, and it offers the chance to forge a lasting relationship with a junior hockey player. If interested in helping out the local junior hockey team or for more information, call Icemen head coach and GM Tom Maroste at 307-578-6496.
