The Pacific Dolphin Swim Association is proud to announce the new branding of its association team name and image. As of November 15, 2011 the official name of the team is the “Vancouver Dolphins” and the acronym will be “VAND”. This replaces UBC Dolphins as the association team name.
Competing under the Vancouver Dolphin’s title at meets from the Age Group National level and above will be the Vancouver Pacific Swim Club, the Winskill Dolphin Swim Club and swimmers from the Pacific Dolphin Swim Club. Vancouver Dolphins will continue to have strong ties to the University of British Columbia and will call that their home base for all High Performance programs associated with the organization.
As the new Head Coach of the Vancouver Dolphins, Steve Price is excited about the updated team brand. “With the opening of the new Aquatic Centre at UBC in 2014 and the redefined relationship with UBC Athletics, the new name and logo reflect the strong desire by all parties associated with the program to build this organization better than it ever was. We are very optimistic by our team now and in the future."
