History

Brampton Excelsiors 1989 - 1994 Brampton-Milton Mavericks 1995 Milton Mavericks 1996 to 2006 Mississauga Tomahawks 2007 to Present

The franchise has a bit of a split history with regards to where it is at this point in time. The current owners brought the team to Mississauga by way of Milton. It started out as a feeder team for the OLA Junior A Lacrosse League's Brampton Excelsiors. In 1995, the team went separate ways from its parent club and moved to Milton. Under the Junior "A" club, the franchise never really did that well. The release from the Junior "A" Excelsiors seemed to be a good thing. After two slow seasons, business seemed to pick up from 1997 until 1999, but the team had utterly no playoff success.

The team went on hiatus in 2000 after a 15-6-0 run in the 1999 season. The team did not return until 2002, but they were not the same. After three mediocre losing seasons, the team went on hiatus again in 2005. The team returned in 2006 under new the management of Craig Ferchat and Jim Meagher but with little or no support from either the Milton Minor Lacrosse Association or the Village of Milton. Local sponsorship was near zero and the player pool was small and shrinking, approximately 250 players in the last year.

In the Fall of 2006 the team was successfully moved to Mississauga, Ontario and changed its name to the Mississauga Tomahawks Jr. B Lacrosse Club. In Mississauga it now enjoys a large and growing player pool of approximately 750-900 players/year, excellent cooperation with the Mississauga Tomahawks Lacrosse Association and the Mississauga Tomahawks Jr. A team. The warm reception from the City of Mississauga and local sponsors is a welcome change for the team.

The name change creates yet another chapter in Mississauga junior lacrosse history, for more info, please see: Mississauga Tomahawks.
