The Braeside Recreation Association was organized by the village council and the Braeside Women’s Institute branch in 1947. It was primarily responsible for the upkeep of the outdoor skating rink, playground and tennis courts. They also provided teams with uniforms and equipment and organized events such as euchre and cribbage tournaments. Hockey has always been one of the most popular sports in the Village.
In 1949-50 the Braeside Men’s Hockey Team won the Arnprior Town League. Members of the winning team included:
