Markham Waxers (Tradition)

HISTORY

OVER 70 YEARS OF JUNIOR HOCKEY Junior hockey came to Markham in the 1930s and now over 70 years later the Waxers continue the tradition.
ON THE "WAXERS" In 1961, the club found a new major corporate sponsor, INTERNATIONAL WAX INCORPORATED, and hence the new name.
HISTORY Junior hockey officially arrived in Markham during the 1930s. The team operated as the Markham Jets Junior "C" Hockey Club and won it's only Ontario Championship in 1941.

In 1961, the club became a Non-Profit Ontario Corporation #112542 and in that year found a new major corporate sponsor, International Wax Incorporated. International Wax has supported junior hockey since that day, and is still a sponsor of the Markham Waxers.

The 1998/99 season sees the Markham Waxers move to the Central Division of the Ontario Provincial Junior "A" Hockey League.
