Thank you for taking an interest in becoming a billet family. Billets play a vital role in the success of the Fort McMurray Oil Barons. Without them, our team would not be able to operate as most of the boys that play on the team are from out of town. Therefore, we are always looking for new billet families.
Billeting can be a very exciting and rewarding experience for all those willing to open up their homes to dedicated players of the Fort McMurray Oil Barons. Many families who have billeted in the past usually look back at their experience with fond memories. In fact, the majority still keep in contact with the players that lived with them as they move on in life, either through professional hockey or another career choice.
Whether you are new or a long time resident of Fort McMurray, billeting is a great way to meet people. You will become as involved with the hockey organization as you want to be. Many billets attend all the home games and subsequently, you will find them after the game waiting for "their boys" in the lobby of the Casman Centre. This is usually when you get a chance to meet with the other billet families.
Each billet family is paid a monthly amount of $500.00 per player (in addition to receiving milk & bread coupons) to house a player in their home. You would be responsible to provide each boy at least one good meal and have the food available so they could cook the other meals themselves. Chores around the house are usually discussed between each player and billet family. As well, each family is given two season tickets and two playoff tickets per player billeted.
If billeting is something you would be interested in please contact me at:

I would be more than happy to discuss the aspects of billeting with you and hopefully welcome you to the Oil Barons family.
