Posse faces housing crisis as billet families needed

COVID safety is first concern for team and supporters, says president

The Princeton Posse is urgently looking for billet families for the 2021-22 season.

Club president Randy McLean told The Spotlight he’s never experienced a year where the players could not find places to live.

“There’s obviously problems, with people afraid of COVID,” he said.

He stressed that safety is the team’s first mandate.

“They can’t play unless they are double vaccinated, and all the people they associate with, either players, trainers, coaches or officials, everyone is double vaccinated.”

Billet families receive $600 per month for hosting a player and get free passes to games

McLean also noted that while billet families make a four-to-five month commitment, players always return to their hometowns for two weeks over the Christmas break.

If billet homes cannot be secured McLean said some kind of alternative accommodations will have to be arranged, but he’s unsure what that might look like.

“We’ve never had to deal with that. I can’t remember never having enough billet homes.”
