The Flyers were founded in 1988 as members of the Western Junior D Hockey League. The Flyers only managed two wins during the 1988-89 season and six in the 1989-90 season. In 1992-93, the Flyers finally showed some promise in the (then) OHA Junior Development League with a record of 22-15-1-0. Unfortunately for the Flyers, the OHAJDL had swelled up to 18 teams by then and despite a good record, with so many teams, the Flyers only managed to place sixth. After six seasons with the WJDHL/OHAJDL, the Flyers were promoted to the Great Lakes Junior C Hockey League.
From the year the Flyers join, 1994-95, until the 2012-13 season, the Flyers have finished as high as second place in the league standings (2003-04, 25-13-1-1), but have yet to have any real success in the league playoffs. From the 2007 playoffs until the 2013 playoffs, the Flyers have bailed out of the quarter-finals six times and did not qualify in 2009.
February 2016, Flyers management submitted a proposal to relocate the team to Petrolia starting next season.
