Uniform Colors The Battalion's uniform is primarily an army-like shade of olive green. The shoulders feature black bars, with white outlining, this is then further outlined in black. Evenly between their shoulders and elbows lie three military-like arrows, pointing downward, to represent rank in a way like the military forces do. See military insignia[?].

Logo Design The logo itself, featuring their mascot, Sarge, gritting his teeth is also army olive green, a mix of yellow and beige, white, fleshish pinky-orange, black, and red. The name Battalion, emblazoned on their uniform is pure red, and is created in a way that it looks three-dimensional.

Championships

As the team is merely in its formation years, none of the teams assembled throughout the short time span have won the Memorial Cup, awarded to the champion team of the Canadian Hockey League.

Franchise history

Since foundation in 1998, games have been covered live and occasionally tape-delayed on Rogers Community Cable 10, Brampton[?], and scores and news been reported in The Brampton Guardian[?]. The club's current and only head coach[?] and Director of Hockey Operations is Stan Butler[?].

As many of the players are still in their mid-teens, Turner Fenton Secondary School plays host to many of the players, due to the short distance from there to the arena.
