MacDowellRugby has partnered with the Cowichan Secondary school and is looking for Duncan residents to open their homes for their out-of-town athletes.
Billeting will be for the school year, September to June
Billet families play an important role in the lives of MacDowellRugby Athletes. Billet families work hard to ensure that our athletes integrate into the community smoothly and comfortably while reducing the stress of moving to a new city and being away from their family.
What it means to billet:
- To be a mentor, friend, counsellor, and a good role model.
- To provide a clean, family-oriented environment.
- To provide nutritious meals and snacks.
- To provide a private bedroom.
- To listen and give encouragement.
- To support and build up their self-esteem.
- To treat the player as “one of the family”.
- To provide transportation if and when needed.
- To provide a Non-Smoking Household.
