Host families

Host families belong to  all the volunteers who are helping with the Christmas Volleyball Tournament. Host families don’t only spend some time to the players but are also making there house available for the athletes so they have a place where they can stay during the tournament. This isn’t a small part, so every year we are glad when there are people who want to be a host family.

The teams who are placed in host famillies are mostly foreign teams. In the past years there were host teams from Belgium, Lithuania and Canada in host families. The advantage of these families is that the athlete has a great stay during the tournament. For foreign teams it even means that they get to know the Dutch culture. Also you are getting in touch with different members from the family and some players stays in touch with the family of their stay. When you want to stay in a host family there are few things important.

– Every athlete has to bring their own sleeping gear

– Talk with your familiy regarding the conduct during the tournament.

Do you want to use the possibility of a host family than is it important to send a e-mail to info@kerstvolleybal.nl on time. We will try to arrange host families for the team. When there are to little families we will make Salland available as alternative.
