Host A Black Bear

The Maryland Black Bears are always looking to expand their Maryland Black Bears Billet Family. These families take our players into their homes and treat them as one of their own. If it were not for these generous families, there would be no Maryland Black Bears Hockey.

Becoming a Billet Family is a very rewarding, enriching, and unique experience.  As a Billet, you have the opportunity to provide a stable and supportive environment for a promising young student-athlete pursuing their hockey aspirations. Permanent, special bonds are formed between the players and their Billet Families that often last a lifetime.

Join the Maryland Black Bears Billet Family today!
