The Memorial Sea-Hawks are the athletic teams that represent Memorial University of Newfoundland in St. John's, Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada.

The University's teams were originally named the Beothuks, after the original inhabitants of Newfoundland, but was eventually changed when that name was deemed offensive.[1]
