We accomplished a lot during the inaugural season of the Erin Outlaws, thanks to the tremendous support of our community. Here are some of our achievements:

  • We had an average of 350-450 spectators attending each home game.
  • We offered a 50/50 draw at every game, with 100% of the profits donated to local service clubs.
  • Over 35 local businesses supported us by becoming our sponsors and vendors, and we were delighted to help promote them.
  • We had an excellent team of 36 staff and volunteers, many of whom were locals.
  • Whenever possible, we collaborated with and provided opportunities for our local teams, such as the Erin Shamrocks, the Erin Hillsburgh Devils, and the Erin Skating Club.
  • DJ On Top provided entertainment during every home game.
  • Finally, we made the playoffs in our inaugural season with the Ontario Elite Hockey League (OEHL).

As we prepare to embark on another season in 2024/25, we can't help but feel incredibly excited and motivated for all the possibilities that lie ahead.


The Erin Outlaws are a part of the OEHL, which was formerly the Western Ontario Athletic Association (WOAA). Hockey Canada recognizes the league and is a member partner of the Ontario Hockey Federation, which is the largest member of Hockey Canada and operates as the governing body for amateur hockey in Ontario. As a result, Senior AA hockey teams can compete for the Allan Cup, the oldest trophy in hockey!

Being a part of this league benefits our players, coaches, and fans due to the support given by the OEHL and the Ontario Hockey Association (OHA) to ensure the overall success and longevity of the Erin Outlaws.

Other teams competing in the league include Seaforth Centenaires, Ripley Wolves, Saugeen Shores Winterhawks, Minto 81's, Tavistock Royals, Creemore Coyotes, Durham Thundercats, Milverton Four Wheel Drives, Georgian Bay Applekings, and the Lucknow Lancers.


CENTRE 2000 is a unique multi-purpose facility that houses the Erin Community Centre, a live performance theatre, Erin District High School, and the Erin Branch Public Library. In 2023, the arena underwent upgrades, including a new scoreboard and more robust LED lighting. Additionally, we added a new centre ice logo that features the Outlaws, and the Erin-Hillsburgh Devils and Erin Shamrocks in each of the neutral zones.

The Erin Community Centre offers a range of amenities such as a 7-ice pad, skate/BMX park, baseball diamond, tennis courts, soccer field, banquet hall, and 7 meeting rooms. The East Wellington Community Services seniors day program and the local food bank are also located within the facility.

The rink was built in 1978 and is near NHL size at 85 feet by 200 feet. It has a seating capacity of 750 in the arena, with additional space in the lobby and upper-level banquet hall. The banquet hall was added in 1992.

Food concessions are available for enjoyment during games, and the beer garden "Outlaw Alley" is liquor-licensed throughout the stands, allowing fans to watch the game while they enjoy their drinks and snacks. We were the first hockey team in Erin to offer this!
