The Maroons originated in the Border Cities Junior B Hockey League in 1959. The team later moved to the stronger Western Junior "B" league in 1964 and continued with the league, even when it became the renegade Southern Ontario Junior A Hockey League in 1970. The Maroons left the league in 1976, became the Maple City Fords and rejoined the current Western Junior "B" league. The Maroons became the MicMacs in 1988, but switched back to their traditional "Maroons" moniker in 1995.

At the 2004 NHL Entry Draft, Ryan Jones was drafted as a Maroon in the fourth round by the Minnesota Wild, 111th overall. He is currently attending and playing for Miami University in Ohio.

The Maroons participated in the 2006 Sutherland Cup round robin, but lost out to the Niagara Falls Canucks and the Cambridge Winterhawks with a 1-3 record

In 1996 the Torrie family purchased the Junior Maroons after the team had suffered through a 6-win season. Their goal was to rebuild the once proud team and turn it into a championship team. In 2 years the JR. Maroons won the Western JR. “B” Championship and the following year they won the Sutherland Cup, emblematic of the Ontario Hockey Association JR. “B” Championship. The Torrie family, headed by Coach and General Manager Dave Torrie, had achieved their goal.

The road to the Cup went through Petrolia, Leamington, St. Thomas, St. Catharines, and Stratford. In the league semi-finals, the Maroons overcame being down 3 games to none against Leamington by winning the last 4 games. After losing game 1 of the league finals to St. Thomas, the Maroons came back to win the next 4 games and claim their second straight Western Jr. B Championship. In the Sutherland Cup round-robin with St. Catharines and Stratford, Chatham again faced elimination when they fell behind 2 games to none but came back to win the next 2 games to go to the finals against the Stratford Cullitons. After splitting the first 6 games of the final series, Chatham captured their first ever Sutherland Cup with a 6-3 win in game 7 in Stratford.
