The Macon Trax were a minor-league professional ice hockey team based in Macon, Georgia, United States. The team played in a different league each year of its existence. The Atlantic Coast Hockey League (ACHL) in 2002-03, World Hockey Association 2 (WHA2) in 2003-04 and Southern Professional Hockey League (SPHL) in 2004-05, playing their home games in the Macon Coliseum. The team went to the championship finals in both the WHA2 and the SPHL, losing in each series to the league champion. This history prompted head coach Tommy Stewart to tell the Macon Telegraph that the team was "always a bridesmaid, never a bride."

The Trax were one of eight minor league hockey teams purchased or founded by real estate mogul David Waronker starting in 2003. By January 2007 all but one of those teams had ceased operations. Following the termination of the Trax in 2005 its players were dispersed by draft to the Pee Dee Cyclones and Florida Seals, two new teams entering the SPHL for the 2005-06 season. Stewart was given a coaching contract with the Florida team, which lost in the 2006 SPHL finals. (The Florida Seals also ceased operations as of January 2007.)
