WANT TO HOST A RIVERKING?
Interested in making an impact on a young man’s life and willing to receive a rewarding experience in exchange? If you’ve never been a host family, now is the perfect time! The season is well under way, but the Wisconsin Rapids Riverkings are always on the lookout for host families for both now and in the future.
Riverkings hockey players range in age from 16 to 20 years old, with many of them coming from outside of Wisconsin. Some players come from as far away as California, and some even come from countries outside of the U.S.. All players are expected to follow the rules and responsibilities of the host family, as well as those determined by the Riverkings staff. Sample rules and responsibilities include household chores, curfews, school and academic grades, work and volunteer programs, and much, much more. Approved host families will receive a $350 stipend per month for each player they host and two season passes to all Wisconsin Rapids Riverkings home games.
Not only will you provide a young man a home, but you also become a mentor, a friend, and a role model for someone who is fulfilling his dreams. It’s a perfect time to help them reach their goals in both hockey and life!
