Do you love the Boulders? Want a unique summer experience? Join a Championship Family and host a Boulders player in 2016!
Each season the Rockland Boulders house many players with host families from mid-May until the beginning of September. This opportunity is great for families who have a spare room in the house, have children who have moved out, or have a child living at home that would like to get to know a Boulder over the summer. Host families are invited to attend every home game and watch their player grow and succeed on the field!
For more information on how to become a host family, or to get in touch with current host families and hear about their experiences contact Kevin Tuve at firstname.lastname@example.org.
“Being huge fans of baseball, and attending Boulders games since the opening of the stadium, my wife and I tossed around the idea of hosting a player. After looking into it we decided we had to try it. We were fortunate enough to host Scott Knazek during the 2013 season. We met Scott a couple of days prior to the start of the season and it turned out to be a wonderful summer. Scott, the catcher for the team, became part of our family right away. During the season, we enjoyed attending the games as we cheered for our player and spending time at home with the family.
Having not been a host family in the past, my wife Debbie and I were a bit apprehensive, but by the end of the season it was tough to say good-bye. We had a lot of fun with Scott, sometimes watching a movie, bowling or having a barbeque with our friends with his family joining us. In fact, we still stay in touch, recently spending some time together over the holidays.
For the 2014 and 2015 seasons, we hosted shortstop Junior Arrojo. We as well as our grandchildren became attached to Junior very quickly. It was made even more exciting since the Boulders won the Can-Am league championship and we were able to share in the experience with the players and the organization.
It was such a fantastic summer and we look forward to hosting another ball player. With any luck it will be Junior again for the 2016 season. We would highly recommend the experience to any other family that would like to get involved with the Rockland Boulders organization. We really felt like part of the team."
