As the U18 AAA Kenora Thistles prepare for the start of the 2021-2022 season, the Thistles are looking for families interested in becoming a billet to house out-of-town players.

“What we would be looking for in a billet family is to open up their household and try to connect with the players. Naturally, you’re going to be spending quite a bit of time together and then through that, I like to think that they’re going to create a little bit of a bond and a friendship with the family and create some memories for a lifetime,” said Scott Parsons Head Coach of the U18 AAA Kenora Thistles

The families will be responsible for providing a furnished room for players, food, and a supportive and enjoyable environment for the players. In return, the billets will receive a billet fee and tickets for Thistles home games.

If families are interested in becoming a billet family they can contact Scott Parsons at or by phone at 807-464-1534.
