Yes you can eat - and other tips for incoming Omaha Players!!!

The 4th of July has come and gone, summer training is moving along and players and parents start looking forward to the beginning of another hockey season!!!

For some players the 2018-19 season will mark a new phase in their hockey career - they will be playing hockey away from home for the first time and they will be living with a Billet or Host family!!!

Living away from home for the first time can be a very stressful experience for both players and parents. So what can be done to make this the smoothest transition as possible?

Billet families are a unique group of caring, giving, supportive and fun hockey loving people. They open their homes and their hearts so that hockey players can develop and chase their athletic dreams. They will become your biggest cheerleaders and offer you a soft place to land on some of the tougher days.

I interviewed our wonderful Billet Families at Omaha AAA to get some tips and tricks for players that will be making the move to Omaha this fall!

When you first get to Omaha you will be on a steep learning curve, meeting your new coaches, your new teammates, new school, new arena and your BILLET FAMILY!!!
