The BYU–Hawaii Seasiders (also Brigham Young–Hawaii Seasiders and BYUH Seasiders) are the 11 varsity athletic teams that represent Brigham Young University–Hawaii, located in Laie, Hawaii, in NCAA Division II intercollegiate sports. The Seasiders compete as members of the Pacific West Conference.

History[edit]

The school has won two women's volleyball and eleven tennis championships (two men's and nine women's, along with one women's NCAA championship). In its early days, BYU-H also won a National Rugby Championship in 1967, as declared by the Los Angeles Rugby Union.[1] Basketball and volleyball games are held in the George Q. Cannon Activities Center. The campus also holds nine tennis courts, an outdoor swimming pool, and soccer and softball fields.[2] Most conference home games in volleyball and women's basketball as well as additional home games in men's basketball are broadcast live around the world on BYUtv Sports. The Seasiders will end their athletic programs after the 2016-17 season.[3][4][5]
