Blaze host families play an intergral part of the Decatur Blaze.
If you are interested in hosting a Blaze player, please contact billeting coordinator Mary Tozer at
for more information about being a BLAZE HOST FAMILY!
A message from Mary:
"Welcome to the Blaze!
I was born and raised in Decatur and have made it my home. My son Kyler and I are excited to be part of the Blaze for the second year. We were a billet family last year for two amazing players! We have developed lifelong relationships with both these players and these players have become family to us!
If you're interested in learning more about this program, please feel free to contact me at
“Housing a junior hockey player is a rewarding experience that’s impossible to put into words, but I’ll try. These boys, they quickly become a part of your family, ‘big brother’ to your children. I’ve housed Blaze players the past two years.
Each one of these amazing young men has taught my children crucial life-long lessons, taken part in their sports practices, went to their plays, and have just been there for my kids serving as positive role models.
They come back and visit when they age out, some spend summers with us, and continue to be a treasured part of our family.”
