Prince George Cougars L


July 4,2014(ISN) - Prince George, B.C. – Is your family looking for a unique way to support the Prince George Cougars and the New Ice Age? The Prince George Cougars are looking for billet families for the 2014-2015 season. Spots are now available for this life-changing opportunity and we encourage you to inquire about the possibility of bringing a future Prince George Cougars player into your home. Recently, the Prince George Cougars management (including President, Greg Pocock and Vice President, Business Andy Beesley) had dinner with over 45 current/former billets at the Twisted Cork. We have carefully evaluated their feedback, and have since made several improvements to our billeting system to create more support and convenience for our billets. Andy Beesley, Vice President Business says: “Quite simply, billet families are the most important people in our City as far as our players and their parents are concerned, and we understand the need to have a first class billet program.” Beesley adds, “We’ve listened very carefully to feedback from our billets, as well as speaking with parents of returning players. We are revamping our entire program from top to bottom to make sure our billet program is something that everyone involved will be very proud of.” Billet families are primarily responsible for housing and feeding players while they are in Prince George during the hockey season. In exchange, families will be appropriately compensated both financially, and with tickets. The billet-player relationship is a very special bond, and it is the goal of our billet program to enable billets and players to create positive memories that last well beyond their playing days in Prince George. “As a young 16-year-old coming to Prince George and living with the Aubichon family, it was a wonderful environment for me to grow up and to play hockey in,” said Prince George Cougars shareholder Eric Brewer. “I believe that Prince George is a great place for young kids to play, and families should be very comfortable with the environment that their kids are going to be in.” “Supportive billet families are a big part of team success,” added Prince George Cougars shareholder Dan Hamhuis. “It’s tough being away from home at that age, and great billets allow players to enjoy their time and experience in Prince George.” For more information on how you can become involved in billeting for the Prince George Cougars, please call Bev Profeit at the Cougars office at: 250-561-0783.
