Host Family Program

Thank you for your interest in the Host Family Program with the Spokane Chiefs!

Host families – often referred to as “billets” – are extremely important to our program. They provide a “home away from home” for our players during the long season. Participants in the Host Family Program bring a positive experience to both their families and the Chiefs players they host.

If you are interested in being a host family with the Spokane Chiefs, please submit an application below. If you have any further questions about the Host Family Program, feel free to contact our Host Family Coordinator, Yvonne Thiede at

Go Chiefs Go!
