Host Families Opportunity
A host family is one of the most important and influential aspects of a ballplayer's independent professional baseball experience. While some of our players are from Southeast Texas, many of them will be in a brand new environment, away from home. The goal of the host family program is to help players adjust to moving to a new area and to provide a safe stable living environment. It also provides an opportunity for the community to assist in the development of these players on and off the field. There really is no better way to get this close to the team and the game.
Host families are asked to provide housing for their assigned player(s) for the duration of their stay. Many players are expected to arrive in July though several will join the team later because of previous baseball leagues and work schedules. The Golden Ducks' season, including playoffs, conclude beginning in September when we are heading to Spring Training. During that span, host families should provide:
. An appropriate bed (singles or bunks can be provided by the team if need be)
.Access to laundry facilities within the home or a local laundry mat in the area
.Access to a refrigerator and kitchen
.Access to your home usually by key or garage code/opener
Meals and groceries will be the responsibility of the individual player and not the host family, however, any meals or assistance with groceries by the host family would be greatly appreciated, Many players will have their own car, so a place to park would be necessary. If the player does not have a car, he will carpool with other players to get to the ballpark. Host families are not required to provide a vehicle to players; you may choose to lend him a vehicle, but that is entirely at your discretion. Beyond that, we ask that you provide a welcoming environment for the players. While players are in Southeast Texas, host families provide more than just housing, you provide a home. We simply request that you make them feel at home.
When you become a host family, you'll be adding a new member to your family, not taking on a tenant. Golden Ducks' players are appreciative of the effort you will be making as a host family , and they can serve as positive role models for your children. Yes, these are college-aged kids, but they are respectful of their environment and nothing less will be tolerated by our organization. The host family will receive four season tickets, four t-shirts and any household with children will receive free admission to one of our two day Golden Ducks little league camp. Admission at Legacy Christian Academy stadium in Beaumont Texas is free due to the provided season tickets but in the instance of the Golden Ducks making TSBL Championship, host families will be provided tickets to the Championship Games. Families love the excitement of championship-caliber baseball and family-friendly entertainment, and the players enjoy seeing their adopted families in the stands. The longest-lasting benefit of becoming a host family, though, is the bond that will be forged between your family and your Golden Ducks' player, the sort of relationship that lasts for years.
To become a host family, the first step is to determine if you are able to fulfill these host family responsibilities. If there are any questions or doubts, please speak to your family about it and feel free to contact the Golden Ducks housing committee with any questions or concerns. Prospective host families are asked to complete a questionnaire, which will provide of the family and the living environment. After the questionnaire has been submitted, you will be contacted by a member of our host family committee to answer any questions and discuss the next step in the process.

The Golden Ducks is an independent professional baseball team in Beaumont Texas. Our team got the name Golden Ducks from the old minor league team in our area the Golden Gators. The reason we have chosen the ducks is simply because Southeast Texas is home to a lot of wildlife including the mallard ducks. This team will play in the Texas State Baseball League with season beginning in October. Our home field will be shared with Legacy Christian Academy in Beaumont Texas.
