Each summer, the Silver Knights welcome college student-athletes to the city as they compete in the Futures Collegiate Baseball League. Players from as far away as Florida, Washington, and California, come to Nashua for an opportunity to further their baseball careers. You can help us make these players feel at home by becoming a Silver Knights Host Family! As a host family, you'd provide access to the following amenities for a player during the summer:
- Private bedroom
- Washing machine & dryer for personal clothing
- Clean linens
- Parking as some players come with their own cars
- Other comforts like meals & snacks for off-days, wifi access, air conditioning and camaraderie are encouraged
We contact our players in advance to ask about their preferences on living in homes with pets or kids as well as any potential food allergies. We then match our players to host families based on their answers so they have the best possible experience while they're in Nashua.
Host families will receive:
- A cash stipend for each player they host
- Tickets to Nashua Silver Knights games
- Invitations to special Silver Knights events, including a preseason cookout
- 20% discount on merchandise
