About The Northeast Generals:

The Northeast Generals provide an opportunity to play Junior Hockey in the North American Hockey League.We offer a full hockey season to players aged 16 to 20 years old. Our program includes experienced professional coaching, games, practices, and college showcases. We also provide transportation, meals, and lodging for travel games. We provide a dedicated home locker room with individual lockers and storage.Additionally, we provide off-ice training and conditioning in a fully-equipped, state-of-the-art fitness center,located on the home rink’s premises. We offer billet services to players who live outside the local region. We also offer educational support to players that wish to engage in academics on a part-time basis. Additionally,we provide opportunities for players to get involved in the community.

Philosophy:

As an organization who values the highest standards of conduct, performance, and respect, we sell an exemplary hockey experience for young men who wish to learn, grow, and achieve on and off the ice.

The NAHL:

The NAHL provides an unparalleled opportunity for players to train and develop. The NAHL is unique in the fact that a vast majority of players begin their NAHL careers without an NCAA opportunity, but earn one through the course of their development in the league. The NAHL’s dedication to player development is demonstrated by the league’s high-profile annual exposure events like the NAHL Showcase and the NAHL Top Prospects Tournament, which have evolved into hockey’s most prominent and popular of its kind and are a must-see for NCAA programs and NHL teams alike.

The NAHL, the only USA Hockey-sanctioned Tier II Junior league boasting 22 teams from across North America, prides itself on the social maturity and skill development of student-athletes ages 16-20 with aspirations of advancing to collegiate and/or professional hockey. During the 2014-15 season, a total of 265+ NAHL players committed to NCAA schools to date and in the past two seasons, over 440 players have made NCAA commitments In addition, 11 current NAHL players have been listed on the 2015 NHL Central Scouting Players to Watch list and seven players with NAHL ties were selected in the 2015 NHL Entry Draft.

BILLET HANDBOOK

As we turn the page into our 3rd season in junior hockey, we are gratified that so many of our Generals families are willing to open their homes to the Northeast Generals players as Billet families. The Billet family is an integral part of our organization, and without their efforts, our club would not be successful!

Billet families invite these Generals players into their homes to be a part of their family for eight months out of the year. In turn the players, age 16-20, take part in many aspects of normal family life with their billets, from family meals to taking on active “big brother” roles at times with their younger billet brothers and sisters in their homes away from home.

A vital factor in accomplishing that goal is assigning players to Billet families who serve as authority figures, role models, and extended family to their assigned player. The efforts of the Billet families make a significant difference in the lives of the young men who have left their homes and families to pursue a dream. In our past experience we’ve seen players show dramatic changes in their confidence level, grade point averages, social graces, behavior, work ethic, relationship to others, and so much more.  The benefit derived from placing the players with Billet families is truly immeasurable.

The unique bonds your family will form with the player(s) you house will last a lifetime. It is not uncommon for players, years after their time in the league, to keep in close contact with their former Billet family: keeping them informed of their collegiate, professional and family lives.

The management and staff of the Northeast Generals greatly appreciate those considering serving as a Billet family for the upcoming season. The information below documents the benefits and responsibilities involved in serving as a Billet family. Closer to the start of the season, each Billet family will be provided with the “Rules and Regulations” section of the player’s contract to ensure that they know exactly what we’re expecting of our players during their time with us.

Thank you for taking the time to read the following information and considering the opportunity to change the life of a young man. Please feel free to contact Director of Logistics, Richard Harvey Jackson, by phone at (781) 773-3006 or by email (rlj@northeastgenerals.com)

Director of Logistics – Northeast Generals Junior Hockey Teams

BILLET HANDBOOK

Frequently asked questions about housing a player

What makes a great billet?

 A sensitive and patient family! It can be overwhelming for a player to be so far away from home. A thoughtful billet family appreciates that each player is unique and that communication and mutual understanding take effort.

  May a family host more than one player?

Yes. Two (or more) players can share transportation expenses, and often times provide camaraderie for one another. All of our players fill out a detailed application and must comply with specific guidelines for behavior and academic performance (if applicable).

 What am I expected to provide?

 We ask that you provide the following:

  1. A separate room and closet for a player, or shared room and bath if hosting more than one player.
  2. Desk and chair, Internet access, and furnishings as you might find in a dorm  room.
  3. Nutritious meals. (Billets are not responsible for meal expenses when players are traveling.)
  4. A patient, supportive, and friendly home atmosphere.
  5. The same guidance and attention you would want for your children.

What you receive in return:

  1. A firsthand understanding of being a hockey fan.
  2. A new perspective on hockey as seen through the eyes of your Jr. A player.
  3. The opportunity to make a difference to a young player and help him toward his dreams.
  1. A stipend of $450 for each player.
  2. Orientation and support from the Northeast Generals and other experienced billets.

Billets can share their lifestyle in a positive and mutually rewarding way while providing a safe, secure, and welcome home. Even the most self-assured players appreciate good quality time with their billet family. Is everyone in your household ready to accept some one new into your home? If willing, this experience can be a great choice.

We want to learn more about you and your family. In our application process we ask for a completed billet family application and an interview with the hosting family. If you or someone you know would like to find out more about becoming Northeast General billet family, please contact:
