The Regina Victorias (often shortened to Vics) were two ice hockey teams, one at the senior level (1914-1938) and one at the junior level (1917-1921), based in Regina, Saskatchewan. They senior Vics played in the Allan Cup Finals three times, winning the Allan Cup in their first (1914) appearance. The senior Victorias were six-time winners of the Saskatchewan Senior Championship, while the junior Victorias were two-time winners of the Saskatchewan Junior championship.

Senior Team[edit]

The Victorias competed in the Saskatchewan Senior Hockey League (SSHL). They were SSHL champions in their first season, 1913-14, going on to win that year's Allan Cup as national champions. The Vics won their second SSHL championship two season later, but lost the challenge for the 1915-16 Allan Cup. The Victorias took a break in 1917-18 because of World War I.

After the war they won the SSHL Championship in 1918-19, 1920–21, 1921–22, 1924–25, 1925–26, and 1928-29. They only managed to make the Allan Cup final once - in 1921-22.

Their fortunes went steadily downhill. The Victorias faced on-ice and box office competition in their own city from the Regina Aces. Eventually the Aces won out and the Victorias folded in 1938.

A combined team (Regina Vic-Aces) played in the 1940-41 season.
