Local businesses work together to support quality, affordable programs for competitive hockey players who are continuing their education or beginning their careers.
The End of a Legacy... The Start of a New Partnership
After a run of 34 years, the former Transcona Junior Railers hockey team of the Manitoba Major Junior Hockey League (MMJHL) ceased operations in 2011, producing a void in our hockey-loving community.
Recognizing that there was a new opportunity that could emerge from this transition, a group of 10 former Railer junior hockey players and alumni came together to build a business plan to to bring back a MMJHL hockey team to Transcona.
The proposal to the MMJHL was successful – and in January 2012, the MMJHL voted to accept a new Transcona franchise for the 2012-13 season.
The non-profit board of directors of this Transcona Junior Hockey Club strives to create a positive, first class environment for young hockey players and fans of Junior Hockey in Transcona. The team takes pride in the Transcona Community by providing a quality, affordable program for competitive hockey players who are continuing their education or beginning their careers.
The mission statement of our team is to “create a venue and opportunity for young players to foster their athletic skills as well as enhance their community spirit.”
