The Kelowna Falcons are looking for host families for the upcoming season.

The season begins at the end of May with the student-athletes arriving just a few days before. While the season goes into August, players are only in Kelowna for half of the season because of road games.

“Falcons’ players, who are 18-22 years old, have been trained to be responsible, self-sufficient and extremely helpful. These student-athletes are coming from extremely prestigious baseball programs and are coming to Kelowna to work and build on their craft,” a Falcons statement reads. “Host families receive an unbelievable summer directly impacting the life of a young student-athlete while learning about a different culture and the ins and outs of baseball.”

Host families will receive two season tickets, a grocery allowance, and be part of a special season-end celebration barbecue.

Anyone interested is to contact the Falcons headquarters via email to billet coordinator Alex Draper ( or call 250-763-4100.
