Host families learn first-hand about the different lifestyle and culture that the athlete has grown up in. The host family and athlete share the evolving process of bringing the world closer together through sharing and friendship.
Similar to an exchange student program, teams are always in need of families that are willing to open their heart and home to a developing athlete. Families are interested in taking a supporting role in the player’s overall development while both get memories that will last a lifetime.
How to Become a Host Family
The first step to becoming a host family is to contact us! Our housing coordinator will make an appointment to visit each home to get a first-hand feel for the lifestyle and accommodation for the prospective athlete. This is also the perfect time to go over the ground rules and expectations that both the team and host family will work with.
Our team places athletes with host families who provide the student athlete with a caring and safe home environment. Host families are able to experience firsthand the exciting experience of elite athlete development.
