Housing Famlies needed

By wb, 08/19/13, 11:30AM EDT


I wanted to reach out to you and introduce myself. My name is Rocky Russo and I am the new Head Coach/Director of Hockey Operations for the Little Flyers EHL team. I have coached Junior Hockey for 8 season's in the North American Hockey league including my last 3 with the Amarillo Bulls.I am writing because we are looking for families to assist us in housing our players. As soon as I was hired it became my mission to make the Little Flyer program one of the elite Junior A teams in the country. In order to do that I had to recruit players from not just the eastern region but also all over the country. At this time I have players committed from  California, Tennessee, Illinois, Michigan and Ohio. I also have one young man coming from Russia.  My goals include a trickle down effect that will have a positive influence on every team within our organization. Our players will be giving back to the community and to the organization on a weekly basis. For those of you with kids in the youth program you can expect a strong presence of Junior A players in and around your players practices and games this season. I will be creating a schedule for all of our players to spend time working with the younger teams and pushing the effort to give back to the organization from top to bottom. I have attached the Little Flyer Expectations and Guidelines that I have implemented this season for your review. This should give you a better understanding of the expectations of the players should they be a part of our program. It is my goal to make this program elite in every way, and the players that represent it are the biggest part. I have recruited not just good hockey players but more importantly good young men. These young men will be excellent additions to your family, the organization and the surrounding community. I have also included my coaching background for your review. If any of you have questions or would like to speak to me directly I have included my cell number below. Also please feel free to write back to me if that is a better option for you. 
Thank you for your time and I sincerely hope that you will consider becoming a part of our billet program. I can assure that it is a fulfilling experience  for not just the short term but you will develop relationships that last a lifetime. I look forward to hearing from you.
All the best,
Rocky Russo
