Billet Families Needed

ESTERO, FL - The Florida Jr. Blades are now seeking billet families for the 2020-21 season. As we prepare to embark on the upcoming season Nicole Solow, Team Manager, has started the process to look for families who are willing to open their homes to Jr. Blades players and join the Jr. Blades family. Billet families are an important part of the success of the organization and will make a huge impact on our dedicated young men from across the country and internationally this upcoming season.

Pat Cantwell billeted two Jr. Blades during the inaugural 2010-11 season and felt the experience was one she would never forget. 

"I love hockey, and I love kids. We've always had kids in the house," said Pat. "We just wanted to be part of hockey and have the boys in. It's been going fantastic."

It's the goal of the Jr. Blades to provide its players the best education possible while teaching them the necessary skills and knowledge required to become an elite hockey player. Throughout the season, the Jr. Blades are dedicated to teaching our players teamwork, leadership, and respect while being a part of the organization.

Billets 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 aspirations. The benefits derived by players from their billet families are truly immeasurable.

The Florida Jr. Blades appreciate those who are considering serving as a billet family for the 2020-21 season. For more information on hosting a Jr. Blades player, please contact Nicole Solow at
