Exchange Gifts & Host Family Gifts
Submitted By Lori Struk on Monday, November 17, 2014
Following every game, the players on the home team each give gifts to the players on the visitors team (usually their billets).

The Coaches will also exchange gifts with each other. These gifts are determined by the committee in each organization.

Host Family Gifts

  • One of the additional costs to the exchange is a “host family” gift.
  • This gift can be what ever you would like.  It is meant as a thank you for taking care of your son/daughter.  It is up to you to decide what is appropriate. 
  • If you are crafty this is a good opportunity to give someone something unique and homemade.
  • Traditionally, a gift basket is used to hold the gift, and it is presented when you first meet the billet parents.
