07.12.2024 | With an eye for the past and a look to our future, Triangle has undergone a rebranding project.
 
Our new logo is a nod to the original logo (shape of the ‘triangle’ and the strength of the letter “T”), yet it is sleek and modern. The logo depicts Triangle in motion and conveys an active and progressive organization. Our color palette has altered slightly to allow for more flexibility in branding and coordination with our WCC facility.
 
After joining Triangle in 2006, I am excited for this bold, new chapter for Triangle and know our athletes, coaches and supporters will embrace and wear our brand with pride. Watch our social media for for more to come including new uniforms, gear as we prep for the 2024-2025 season.
