Players needing a billet should complete the Player Profile and return as soon as possible.


Each year, several hockey players who live out of state are selected to play for the RoughRiders, and we count on local families to host these talented athletes and provide a safe place for them to live while they follow their hockey dreams.

Our Mission:
The RoughRiders mission is to provide every player a safe, memorable and positive environment for youth hockey. 

Our Goal:
The goal is to create and maintain a quality experience where young people are given the tools and direction to progress to the next level of the sport they love.

The Details: 
• The Host Families play a vital role in the ultimate success of our athletes.
• They provide strong role models, authority figures and a supportive family environment that will make a significant difference in the lives of the young men who have left their families to pursue their dreams.
• Players in need of a host family are between 15-18 years old.
• The benefits derived by players from their Host Families are truly immeasurable. If you are interested in talking to families who have billeted in the past, please contact us and we will connect you. 

If you are interested in becoming a billet family, or just simply learning more, please contact Greg Vanover at
