The Canyon County Spuds are in search of a couple more host families in the Caldwell and Nampa area for the upcoming 2021 season. Host families are vital to the operation of the team! Collegiate ballplayers from all over will be in need of home away from home during their 64-game season this summer.

Most players typically arrive in town in late May and stay through the end of the season in early August. Some players also come and go for various reasons during the season, so host families are asked to be willing and flexible in case they may have to take in a new player down the line.

If you're interested in becoming a host family there a few expectations. Players must be provided with a clean safe home (bedroom, bed, bathroom, laundry access, parking space if needed. Food must also be available for the players outside of pre-game and post-game meal provided by the team on game days. Clear household rules are expected to be set by the family for the player and the team also asks for good communication between host families, players, and team staff.

Of course players have their own lists of expectations as well.  Players sign a code of conduct and will understand that they are to positively represent themselves, their school, and the Spuds organization always during their time in Caldwell.

Families interested in opening their homes are encouraged to email Carmen at carmen@spudsbaseball.com in addition to completing the application form. All host family applicants will also be subject to an in-home interview and background check.
