If you have a room to spare, please consider hosting a HarbourCats player this summer!
The Victoria HarbourCats Baseball team begins their 8th season in late May 2020 and are actively seeking host families to billet their players over the months of May, June, July and August.
Host families are an integral part of any summer-collegiate baseball team, and are the lifeblood the team’s success, providing a safe and pleasant home environment for player(s) for the duration of the season.
Your primary role as a host family is to provide a safe and pleasant home environment for your player(s) for the duration of the season. Players will require comfortable sleeping quarters and access to bathroom (with bedding & towels) as well as laundry equipment. Families should be prepared to provide food for 2 meals per day (breakfast & dinner or post-game meal) however players may not be home for 2 meals per day and of course will be on the road for half of that time period between May and August. The team will also sometimes offer post-game meals for the players. Some players may also need transport to and from the stadium on game days, or to head out on road trips.
Host family compensation includes a modest monthly stipend to help cover some food costs, as well as free season tickets for all members of the family. Perhaps the largest compensation, however, is that by becoming a HarbourCats host family, you have the opportunity to play a very important role in the life of a student-athlete, and aspiring professional baseball player. In turn, your player will be a positive influence, and will likely form a life long friendship with your family.
If you are interested in becoming a host family, please e-mail the HarbourCats at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call the office at 778-265-0327.
