The Timmins Rock compete in the Northern Ontario Junior Hockey League (NOJHL) and are one of 131 Canadian Junior Hockey League (CJHL) teams who compete for the Royal Bank Cup (Hockey Canada National Title). The twelve-team NOJHL is one of ten CJHL member Junior "A" leagues Canada-wide.

The franchise was established in 1991 and is entering year 26 of operations. Notable franchise alumni includes Steve Sullivan (1991-92) - Development Coach - Arizona Coyotes (NHL). The franchise is operated by a not-for-profit Ontario Corporation administered by an all-volunteer Board of Directors. All funds generated remain with the Team.
