The Memorial University Sea~Hawks athletic program gives student-athletes an opportunity to continue their pursuit of sporting and athletic triumphs. At Memorial you’ll find male and female varsity sports teams in:

  • soccer
  • cross-country running
  • volleyball
  • basketball
  • swimming
  • wrestling

These teams compete in the Atlantic University Sport (AUS) conference with champions heading to the Canadian Interuniversity Sport (CIS) championships. They represent Memorial University on the field of play, in the community and in the classroom, and do it with pride.

For all things Sea~Hawks visit


There is an extensive list of intramural sports you can play while at Memorial. The list is always changing, so check out The Works or Residence Coordinators to find out the sports being offered. These are especially competitive within the residence community. We have three club sports that are student run, but also competitive. These are:

  • curling (mens and womens)
  • cheerleading
  • rowing


Try outs for most varsity teams and competitive club sports happen within the first week of classes. You may want to contact the coach in advance for exact try-out times.

Intramural and non competitive club sports start up shortly after classes start. You can look for posters around campus, or talk to other students in residence to find out how to get involved. Students living on campus will have no problems finding out about these teams.
