This Summer, the Blues are looking for three host families.
The role of the host families is to provide a home and meals for the player during the season and in return, the host family receives two season tickets for home games and are a critical part of the team operations.
Host families are generally assigned one player to a residence, however several host families have taken 2 players over the last two summers. It is the player’s responsibility to follow the host family household rules as well as state and local laws.
“We do a brief survey to see player preferences – a quiet setting vs. a family with kids; pet allergies, and food issues,” stated Host Family coordinator Ellen Zoppo-Sassu, “and try to place them appropriately, while also logistically placing the players without cars near players who do have cars. We have been very fortunate that the majority of pairings have gone very well, and many friendships have continued past the summer.”
For information on how to be considered as a host for the 2017 season, please email Ellen Zoppo-Sassu at email@example.com.
