Good morning, my name is Nick Davey, I'm the head coach of the Albany Dutchmen, in the Perfect Game Collegiate League and my host family coordinator Lindsey Mooney and I are reaching out to ask for your support this season as we search for host families for our out of town players.
This is the Dutchmen’s 11th season in the Capital District, and they have had over 25 former players drafted into the major leagues so far. The Dutchmen have played their home games for the past 2 summers at Siena College, and will be returning there again this season.
Currently we are seeking housing for about 12 players this summer. The players will be reporting on May 28/29th and will be staying through the first week of August depending on how far they go in the playoffs. The players come from all across the country, from schools such as: Vanderbilt, University of Virginia, Ole Miss, St. Johns and Xavier University.
This is an incredible opportunity for these collegiate athletes and it would not be possible without the support of our host families. We would greatly appreciate it if you could pass the word within your league about our need for host families this summer.
Attached is a flyer with my contact information, as well as, a Player/Host family guideline sheet that might answer some common questions of the role a host family plays, and some of the responsibilities volunteers should expect.
Lindsey, our host family coordinator would be happy to share her experiences hosting, answer any questions, as well as contact anyone interested. Thank you for your time and support. We look forward to hearing from you. I've attached or host family flyer as well as a host family guidelines form that will answer some questions that potential families might have.
Below is a quick blurb from Lindsay talking about her experience host two players last summer:
"Last summer, my husband, our two elementary age sons, and I welcomed two Dutchmen players into our home. We formed an amazing bond with these two young men, and have since been to visit both to watch them play for their college teams. My children loved spending time with the players, watching their games, and learning from them. It was a wonderful experience that we are excited to repeat this summer."
