The Calgary Mountaineers are a box lacrosse organization based out of Calgary, Alberta, Canada. The organization represents teams at three levels of the Rocky Mountain Lacrosse League: a Senior B squad, along with a Junior A team and a Junior B team.

The Junior B Mountaineers were created in the late 1990s, and have won the Alberta Provincial Championship in 2000, 2004, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013.[1]

In the 2009 season, the Mounties finished the regular season first overall in Alberta with a nearly unfettered record of 19-1.[2] On August 22, 2009, the Junior B Mountaineers doing what only two non-Ontarian teams have done before upset the OLA Junior B Lacrosse League's Clarington Green Gaels 8-4 to win Alberta's first Founders Cup since 1999, [3] finishing the season with an overall record of 29-3.
