History

The U18 AAA Waterloo Wolves are a regional, provincial and national success story. 

U18 AAA (formerly known as Major Midget AAA) Waterloo Wolves players have been drafted into the NHL, provincial Junior A (and tier-two Junior A) and European Hockey Leagues. Many of our players have also moved on to play Junior B and Junior C hockey, as noted on our Alumni page.

We are truly proud of all the young men who wear the Midget AAA Waterloo Wolves uniform.
