The Royals were founded in 1987. They struggled in their early years, but won their first division title in 1994-95. Six consecutive division titles followed, and the Royals captured the provincial title in 1996-97. They advanced to the Keystone Cup, finishing third. They would win the provincial title again in 1999-00, but would not win another division title until 2004-05, when they won the divisional and provincial championships, before losing in the Keystone Cup final to the Osoyoos Storm. The Royals would qualify for the Keystone Cup for the next two seasons, finishing fourth in 2005-06, but winning gold in 2006-07, defeating fellow PJHL side and host team Fort Qu'Appelle Fort Knox. The Royals would return to the Keystone Cup in 2008-09, finishing third. They would be elected host team of the 2012 Keystone Cup, finishing fourth. The following year the team qualified again for the Cup, losing in the final to the Richmond Sockeyes of the PIJHL.
