Host Families Wanted!

By Derek Edwardson 05/21/2019, 3:45pm EDT

As the 2019-2020 hockey season approaches, the Jr Fuel 16U and 18U AAA teams have received more interest than ever from AAA level players across the country. On June 1st and 2nd we will be selecting our final rosters that will include several players moving to Indy to play for us.

We are looking for families to host players for the hockey season and be a second home for young men putting it all on the line to take their game to the next level. Families must provide a safe and positive home life. While hosting a player can be very rewarding and create lifelong bonds and friendships, it can be challenging for both the player and host family. We do our best to match families and players with compatible values and family background.

Families will be given strict guidelines and expectations including providing all meals for the player, transportation if the player does not have access to a car and his own bedroom with private closet space for the entire school year.

Players are expected to live by reasonable house rules and will be held to the highest standard of behavior.  

Host families will receive a stipend each month (amount determined by the IYHA) directly from the player’s parents for food and groceries. Host families are not responsible for travel expenses or food when a player travels for games. 

This is a great opportunity to help a player reach his hockey goals and serve as a role model for your young players. If you are interested please fill out the document linked below and submit it to Derek Edwardson derek@iyha.com.
