The South Atlantic Intercollegiate Athletic Association (SAIAA) was an intercollegiate athletic conference with its main focus of promoting track and arranging track meets. The SAIAA was first formed in 1907 and remained active until 1921. The conference's membership was centered in the Mid-Atlantic region of the United States, with member schools located in the states of Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina, and South Carolina, as well as the District of Columbia.

The conference disbanded in 1921, and six of its schools became founding members of the Southern Conference alongside eight former members of the Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Association (SIAA). Those six SAIAA schools were: Maryland, North Carolina, North Carolina State, Virginia, Virginia Tech, and Washington and Lee (except for the latter and Maryland, all are now in the Atlantic Coast Conference).[1]


The following universities were members of the SAIAA at some point during its existence. Where known, the school's name is followed by the period of its membership in the conference. Italicized years indicate a confirmed year of membership, but may not be exhaustive. Track meets were held in 1911, and 1912 was the first season of play for all sports.[2]
