Kelowna Jays in need of billet homes

Junior baseball team looking for local families to accept players for two months this summer

The Kelowna  Jays, the 2010 and 2011 B.C. junior baseball champs, are  in need of some billet families for approximately 60 days in June and July for the 2013 season.

Every season the Jays provide a quality, competitive, learning baseball environment for kids attending Canadian and U.S. Colleges.

The team is comprised mainly of Canadian players, local and from other B.C. cities, and a few U.S. kids.

Billeting these young men is not a difficult task as unlike the hockey players their requirements are not as regimented with respect to meals, meal times and transportation.  These young men are used to living away from home and most will have jobs.

Financial compensation will be provided along with season tickets to all Jays games and tournaments.  The Jays play most home games at Elks Stadium but also play several at Boucherie Park in West Kelowna.

Billeting can be a rewarding experience as we have had some long term relationships formed over the years between the families and kids.
