The Streetsville Tigers have been around under different names since 1946 when they along with seven other communities in the Toronto Township formed the T.T.H.L which Streetsville left in the late sixties. In 1962 the Streetsville and District Minor Hockey Association began to play out of their new rink the Vic Johnston Community Centre. During those early years the Tigers played under many names including, the Thunderbirds, Hounds, Tigers, Kings, Panthers and Rep Teams. After leaving the T.T.H.L. after the 1967-68 season Streetsville iced five teams to played in the Tri-County A league of the Ontario Minor Hockey Association at the start of the 1968-69 season. That first season included, The novice Thunderbirds, The IGA Pee Wees', The Hutt Fence Bantams, The Maple Lodge Midgets and the Juvenile Derbies. Streetsville won two championships that year, the Novice team won the Tri-County "A" championship by deatfeating Milton in the finals two games to none. The Juvenile Derbies won the Tri-County A Division League championships finishing in first place.

In 1968 Mr.Bill Snarr began the Streetsville International Tyke Tournament which still takes place today and is now called the Streetsville Tigers "AA" Fall Tournament.

After many successful years at the A level the Tigers were granted AA status in the O.M.H.A. Their many championship banners hang in their home arena the Vic Johnston Community Centre. In 1986-87 the Streetsville Juvenile AA team won the All Ontario Finals defeating Willowdale.

In the late eighties then President, the late Bill Mann and the hockey executive embarked on a name search for the Streetsville Rep teams. The winning name chosen was Tigers, from that date on the name and team colours were adopted into the Rules and Regulations. The next step was to find a logo and that occurred the following season.

The Tiger logo was designed and adopted in 1990 and has been incorporated into all tiger equipment, sweaters, pants, equipment bags, hats and jackets.

The Tigers moved to the O.M.H.A. Central Triple A league in 1991-1992 where they competed for four years. Winning a Bantam League Championship banner.
