    Minnesota Loons Billet Families Needed!

    From Craig Larson, GM

    Billet Families are an important part of the Junior Hockey experience and good comfortable housing for our players is a priority. The experiences I've had with Billet Families have always been a positive one and I've heard nothing but good things about the families who have housed players in the past.  You can go to our team page and click on this link, to get more information. 

    https://www.mnloons.com/get-involved/billet-families

    If interested, there is a Billet application and we'd need other documents as we move forward, such as background checks, Free USA Hockey registration as a volunteer and filling out a USA Hockey SafeSport application.  All are easy to fill out and we'll be able to verify each one.

    You can contact me via email at craig@mnloons.com or Assistant coach Kegan Couture at kegan@mnloons.com.
