The first information on the team comes when they were added to the Southeast Junior Hockey Leaguein April of 2007. The team was known as the Atlanta Jr. Thrashers when the team was announced but changed to their current name before they took to the ice that fall. The team played in the SEJL until the league became part of the Empire Junior Hockey League as the EJHL South in 2011. The EJHL South was absorbed into the United States Premier Hockey League's Empire Division for the 2013-14 season.

As part of the move to the new Marietta Ice Center the team was renamed the Atlanta Kings

The team was successful from the start winning the SEJHL's playoffs its first three seasons (2008-2010). The third championship was capped off with the 2010 USA Hockey Tier III National Championship.

The organization would be dissolved after the 2018-19 playing season.  The organization would be replaced by the Atlanta Mad Hatters would be based out of what would now be called the Hatter's Arena.
