The Fresno Monsters are accepting applications from host families in Fresno County. Players come to Fresno, CA from around the world to play in the prestigious United States Premier Hockey League. 

Host Families are essential to the success of the Fresno Monsters Hockey Club. Our nurturing Host Families provide a stable and secure home-away-from-home for our players. Many players leave home and their families for the first time to play in the United States Premier Hockey League (USPHL). 

A host family allows our players to realize their potential as elite student-athlete at an elite level of hockey.

Host families, also known as a billet family, develop lifelong relationships with Monsters’ players, in addition to establishing lasting connections with the players, parents, and extended family.

To qualify as a billet, families are required to provide a player with his room from the start of training camp in late August through the end of the hockey season and provide the player with regular family meals. In exchange, the families receive a monthly stipend to help pay for groceries, season tickets to all home games, and invitations to team events.

To inquire about becoming a Monsters Host Family, please email Sandi Hiatt at shiatt@fresnomonsters.com or complete the host family form and a member of our staff will be in touch with you as soon as possible.
