Each season, the Janesville Jets seek local families with a bit of extra room in their hearts and homes.
Without question, junior hockey cannot exist without the backbone of our strong billet families. Every August, 25-30 young men between 16 and 20 years old come to Janesville from all over the US, Canada, and Europe to continue their dream of playing NCAA Division I hockey. Billet families provide a caring, supportive, family environment that becomes the “home away from home” for our young men. Billeting can be an exciting and rewarding experience.
“As a billet family, we love being involved with the Jets. It’s a privilege to cheer on our billet sons as they chase their dreams, grow as players and as people, and become part of our family and our community.” — Renee Engen, 4th-year billet parent.
Billet families are provided $325/month per player to offset food and other costs. Families also receive two (2) Jets season tickets per player.
Please note: an application is not a contract obligating you to being a host family; we are just gathering preliminary information from interested families.
