73's LOOKING FOR BILLET FAMILIES FOR '21-22 SEASON
July 27, 2021
The Essex 73's Junior Hockey club is looking for Billet Families for the upcoming 2021-22 season.
Billets serve as authority figures, role models, and extended family to their assigned players, and players rely on their billet parents for help while transitioning to a new town and community. The efforts of billet families make a significant difference in the lives of the young men who have left home for the opportunity to play junior hockey elsewhere. In the past, members of the Essex 73's organization have seen players show dramatic changes in confidence levels, grade point averages, social graces, work ethic, and more while living with billet families. The benefit derived from placing the players with billet families is truly immeasurable.
The unique bond families form with their players often last a lifetime: It is not uncommon for players to keep in close contact with their former billet families years after playing junior hockey.
A long-standing tradition in hockey culture, billets are a vital part of a team’s success, both on and off the ice.
For more information on billet pay and other billet perks, please contact general manager, Mike Pailey at firstname.lastname@example.org.
PJHL SETS OCT. 1st AS START DATE FOR
June 22, 2021
The Provincial Junior Hockey League (PJHL) has
announced the 2021-2022 start date.
At a meeting of the Board of Directors for the Provincial Junior Hockey League, it was determined that October 1,
2021 will be the start date for the 2021-2022 season.
That is great news for hockey fans!
All teams are currently preparing for the upcoming season.
While the league did everything possible to play last season, it became evidently clear that a season would not be possible with all the COVID restrictions. With many municipalities removing their ice and using their arenas as vaccination clinics, our teams were without ice to practice or play. And with a league our size the time to operate a season and then some form of playoffs became nearly impossible.
The schedules for the eight divisions are being worked on and they will be announced in the upcoming weeks.
More details along with playoff format and dates will be forthcoming as well. Stay tuned!
