After impressing many with their skills last year, Hungary’s under-16 national hockey team is returning for the 2017 Richmond International Bantam Midget Hockey Tournament.

However, billet family homes for the players are urgently needed during their stay from Dec. 26 to Jan. 4. The players are all 15 years old. An honorarium of $200 per player will be given.

“This is a great opportunity for our community and a great experience for your family,” says Isabel Angeles, who is heading up the host group. “Ideally, if you have room for two players more than would be great.”

Angeles says if this is an opportunity you are interested in, email

The 37th annual Richmond International Bantam Midget Hockey Tournament, sponsored by Sheraton, Marriott and Hilton Vancouver Airport Hotels features teams at the Tier 1, Tier 2 and Tier 3 levels from mostly throughout Canada and the U.S. It will be played at the Richmond Ice Centre, Minoru Arenas and the Richmond Olympic Oval from Dec. 26 to 31.
