Student Athlete Recruitment Information

Put on the red and white and get in the game.
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 and wrestling. These teams compete in the Atlantic University Sport (AUS) conference with champions heading to the Canadian Interuniversity Sport (CIS) championships.

Where we are is who we are.
Reflect on that statement for a moment: “Where we are is who we are.” Newfoundland and Labrador is vast with natural beauty…set on the north Atlantic coast, at the easternmost portion of Canada. Where we are–our vast geography, rugged terrain, amazing vistas, pristine nature and sprawling coastlines–help make this province unique and special. What better location to push yourself to your limits than an island that is right on the edge of the world.

Become at Memorial.
Memorial students are explorers by nature. Over 17,000 of them, from over 80 countries. When you choose Memorial University, you’ll find that the opportunities for learning are endless. Memorial is the largest university in Atlantic Canada and you’ll find the largest of our four campuses in the capital city of St. John’s.

The past is prelude.
You do not have to go far to see the athletic history of Memorial. One look into the rafters of the Field House will show you that we have been there, in the championship game, with the conference title on the line, and we walked away with the title. Walking through the halls of the Physical Education and Recreation Building you will find Butler Row. Future Sea~Hawks aspire to have their name and photo on Butler Row with the other championship teams and All-Canadians in the history of Memorial. Our athletic past is the prelude of the great things to come.

Home court advantage.
The future of athletics at Memorial has never been brighter, with more support for athletes than ever before, including access to world class facilities. The Field House, the home court in basketball and volleyball is a 1,400 seat facility that provides new meaning to the term “home court advantage”.

We have a team of experts ready to give athletes the edge they need to reach new heights. Specialized exercise programs, strength and conditioning, and fitness testing allows athletes the regimen they need to continually improve.

Show me the money.
There are a number of financial athletic awards available to student-athletes. These awards are administered on the recommendations of our coaches and the amounts available vary from sport to sport. Student-athletes must meet all of the eligibility requirements on Athletic Financial Aid.
