Saying Goodbye to Terriers Founder Joe Schembri

February 4th, 2022|

It’s with a heavy heart that we announce the passing of the founder of our organization, Joe Schembri, on February 2, 2022, at the age of 81. Joe founded the Mississauga Terriers Hockey Club in 1977 and although he retired from his active commitments in 2003, he was never truly gone. In 2004 the Terriers organization created the Joe Schembri scholarship fund which has awarded more than $40,000 in scholarships in his name. Joe was inducted into the Mississauga Sports Council Hall of Fame in 2017.  He will be missed, but never forgotten, and his simple motto of, “Just Do It For The Kids, ” will continue to be part of the fabric that makes the Terrier organization so successful. https://www.arbormemorial.ca/scott-brampton/obituaries/joseph-joe-schembri/78397

U12 Hamilton Huskies Classic Tournament Champions

November 22nd, 2021|

Coming off the heels of a strong 2nd place finish at the London Knights Green and White Tournament a week ago in London, the U12 Terriers didn’t waste anytime carrying their momentum forward into the Huskies Classic Tournament this weekend, in Hamilton.  In the round robin, the team had strong games against their competitors, which included 2 wins and 2 ties to have them finish in 2nd place going into Sunday playoffs.  The semi finals had the Terriers come out on top against the highly ranked Oakville Rangers beating them 6-1 after an initial round robin tie.  In the finals, the Terriers faced their 2nd rematch of the tournament against long time rivals, Milton Winterhawks.  The Terriers came out firing on all pistons and had the Winterhawks on their heels the entire game to cap off a great 4-1 Championship.  After the game, the players  and Assistant coaches made Head Coach Vic, uphold his promise of busting his infamous dance move: ‘The Worm’, back in the change room!

Congrats to our U12’s.  They once again made us proud!

Meet the 2019 – 2020 Mississauga Terriers!

Molding Our Future, One Player at a Time

We believe our organization is about all the characteristics that are associated with excellence.  As a Club, we stress fair play, sportsmanship and dedication.  In return, we expect our team staff, parents, spectators and most of all our players, to display the same characteristics.  The game of hockey requires a great deal of intelligence, athletic skill, mental toughness, physical strength and a competitive nature that knows how to win with humility and lose with dignity.  Winning may seem important to many, but we don’t view winning as the only measure of a successful season.  We view these other values and life lessons that come from participating in the game as our measure of success.

Our Philosophy

Our Philosophy is “Do it for the Kids”.  We expect this philosophy will continue to permeate the entire organization for many years to come. We operate as not-for-profit organization and rely heavily upon sponsorship, fundraising efforts and most importantly on the tireless work and dedication of our numerous volunteers who are willing give their time to forward our values and principles.
