Poll: Should Selkirk College change the name of their sports teams?

College asking public for their views… and we are too!


The Selkirk College varsity sports name, “Saints”, name goes back to when the college first opened in 1966. The charter class of 458 students — men and women — could participate in Saints-labelled teams and clubsthat included hockey, basketball, soccer, skiing, boxing, fencing and archery.

Currently, Selkirk College has just one varsity team. The Selkirk College Saints men’s hockey team represents the region.

The College is reviewing the Saints name, colours and logo, and wants to know what the public thinks. Is the ‘brand’ dated and boring, or just fine?

The college is asking the public to participate in an online discussion on the issue at thoughtexchange.com.
