Host families provide strong role models and a supportive family environment that make a significant difference in the lives of the young men who have left their families to pursue their football dreams. The host family plays a key role in the development and success of the player.

Homestay players should be provided with:

—Meals: 3 meals a day and snacks, including a packed lunch during the school week

—Laundry: Washing

Bedroom: Table or desk, chair, bed with linen and blankets or duvet, chest of drawers and/or wardrobe

The player is to be living in a caring, stimulating family environment.

Homestay Families receive a weekly payment to cover the cost of hosting a player.

Please contact Renee Clearwater if you would like more information or have any questions.
