The Kitchener Rangers Host Family Program plays a major role in our team's success both on and off the ice. It takes special people to open their homes and hearts to our players and we take the utmost care to ensure our players are placed in environments that are conducive to care, understanding and safety.

We ask that our players be treated like any other member of your family. It is important that he respects the rules of his host family and the host family respects the rules of the hockey club. The values and principles for success that are essential to become a member of the Kitchener Rangers will be demanded at the rink, in the home, in the community and in school.
