Fond du Lac Dock Spiders Host Family Program

Host Families Needed for Northwoods League Team in 2017

FOND DU LAC, WI – The Fond du Lac Dock Spiders are seeking host families to welcome players into their homes for the 2017 Northwoods League season.  Host families house, feed, and provide support to players who will be coming to Fond du Lac from all over the United States for the inaugural season of the team.

Families interested in the program should have a separate bedroom for the player and be able to host a player from late-May through mid-August.

Benefits of the program for host families include:

• Complimentary tickets for your immediate family.

• A 15% discount in the team store.

• Guaranteed all giveaway items distributed during the season

• Special host family events.
