USA Hockey Seeking Host Families in Ann Arbor, Mich. for 2013-14 Season

Each year dozens of exceptional Ann Arbor families open their homes to 44 of the finest American amateur hockey players in the nation. These selfless families provide a vital service to the success of USA Hockey's National Team Development Program. USA Hockey always needs families to take in players and provide homes and a family environment for the student-athletes who attend Ann Arbor Pioneer High School.

USA Hockey's NTDP was created to prepare student-athletes under the age of 18 for participation on U.S. National Teams and success in their future hockey careers. Its efforts focus not only on high-caliber participation on the ice, but creating well-rounded individuals off the ice. The players in the program are split into two squads - the U.S. National Under-18 and Under-17 Teams. The schedule includes games against junior teams in the United States Hockey League, participation in major international tournaments and competitions with NCAA Division I and III college hockey squads.

The relationship shared between the players, host families and the players' families can last a lifetime! All families receive a monthly stipend and complimentary tickets to USA Hockey home games. If you want more information or live in the Ann Arbor school district and can help us by becoming a host family, please call our housing coordinators at (734) 327-9251 ext. 323 or email us at housing@usahockey.org.
