The La Ronge Ice Wolves need billet families for the upcoming campaign.

“In total, I’ll need 28 billet families,” said Rita Goertzen, who is the billet coordinator for the Ice Wolves. “We’re still short a few. A few people have come forward, so that’s awesome.”

Goertzen says being a billet is a rewarding experience.

“You gain a family member, you get really close to these young men,” said Goertzen. “For myself, I gained a son last year or the last couple years.”

If you are interested in becoming a billet or you need more information, you can contact Rita at (306) 425-7796.

Meantime, the SJHL is targeting Oct. 9 as the start date for the 2020-21 season, but for the league to kick off play then, approval would be needed from the Saskatchewan Health Authority.

The Ice Wolves will open training camp Sept. 18.
