Become a Host Family and be a part of the
Wilmington Sharks Summer Experience!
WHAT DO I PROVIDE? A home away from home for a player and a family
support system                                                                                                   
WHY WOULD I WANT TO DO THIS? Because it is a great family experience!
It is exciting to go out and support your “adopted summer son” and the rest of
the team. The Coastal Plain League is well-respected and it is a chance to see
talented college players who may one day make it to the majors! It is a family
atmosphere that is just a lot of fun for all!
WHAT’S IT LIKE? You don’t really see them much-The Sharks schedule is
hectic, they get in late, they usually sleep late because they are tired from the
night before, and they leave mid afternoon for the field! They don’t have many
off days... The Sharks provide dinner for the players on game days, but the
players need access to food for breakfast and lunch. How you do that varies
from family to family.
WHAT DO I NEED TO DO? Fill out the attached questionnaire and return it as
soon as possible
ANYTHING ELSE I NEED TO KNOW? There is no guarantee that you will get
a particular player or particular position or that your player will be here the whole
summer. Placement is assigned based on many factors and things happen:
situations arise and players leave (injuries, family circumstances, conditional
contracts, etc.)
Players are expected to abide by YOUR house rules, but you must let them know
what your expectations are.
Thank you for your willingness to consider being a host family! Without host families,
the Wilmington Sharks could not exist and your generosity in opening your home to
these players is appreciated so much. We look forward to hearing from you! An
informational meeting is planned for early April and you will receive notice of it.
