Dear Prospective Host Family,
Thank you for expressing interest in becoming a Utica Jr. Comets Hockey Club “Host Family.” We are looking forward to the upcoming season and your contribution to our program as a potential host family plays an important role in the Jr. Comets having a successful season. We thank you for your enthusiasm and interest in our program.
These elite athletes, who range from age 15 to 20, are recruited from across the United States, Canada and Europe to continue their education and hockey careers through comprehensive training and high-caliber competition on the ice while developing into well-rounded individuals off the ice as they pursue their dreams of obtaining an NCAA scholarship or advancing to professional hockey. They require a caring, comfortable, clean and safe environment that will nurture their development as outstanding hockey players and positive role models in the community.
Those families interested should:
- Have a balanced, family-oriented lifestyle
- Live in the Utica area
- Desire to support the Jr. Comets organization
- Have experience with and understanding of teenagers
Our players will arrive in mid August and will be here until mid spring. We have team guidelines and policies that our players must abide by while with our organization and we will do everything possible to make sure that this experience is a rewarding one for both the player and the Host Family.
Please complete the application and return it to us if you are interested in housing a player.
After we receive all applications, we will make our selections and will follow up with one-on-one interviews and in-home visits. We hope to have all housing selections made and all players placed by the end of July. Please email the application to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have any additional questions please contact us at (914) 299-3831.
