Mississauga Blackhawks Hockey Association
The Mississauga Blackhawks Hockey Association (formally Mississauga Braves) was founded in 1982 as an offshoot of the AAA Mississauga Reps. The not-for-profit organization originally played out of Dixie Arena, moving to Cawthra Arena, then Tomken Arena, before finally settling into its new home at the Hershey Centre.
In its 1982-1983 inaugural season, the Mississauga Blackhawks captured two Carnation Cup Divisional Championships and one GTHL Championship.
The Mississauga Blackhawks Hockey Association competes in the GTHL AA West Division with some 170 players aged 8 to 21 on ten teams from Minor Atom to U21AAA. The Blackhawks Association strives to provide a positive environment for players to develop both hockey and life skills, while enjoying the thrill and benefits of competing in Canada’s national winter sport.
