Founded in 1928, the Okotoks Oilers are one of the most popular hockey teams in the area. Ever since they started playing, the community has rallied around the team and made them their own. During the 1930s and 1940s, the team provided a necessary break from worries of everyday life.
During the 1960s and 1970s, the Oilers thrived and even throughout the 1980s. A new brand of hockey hit the ice in 2005 and the Oilers added the Okotoks Junior "A" Oilers hockey club. The same pride is behind this team and the community still shows up to support this incredible franchise.
