The Alaska Anchorage Seawolves are the 13 varsity athletic teams that represent the University of Alaska Anchorage, in Anchorage, Alaska, in NCAA intercollegiate sports. The majority of UAA's athletic teams are in Division II with the exception of the gymnastics and hockey teams, which are members of Division I. The Seawolves principally compete as members of the Great Northwest Athletic Conference. Teams playing outside the GNAC include the hockey team (Western Collegiate Hockey Association) the gymnastics team (Mountain Pacific Sports Federation), and the skiing team (Rocky Mountain Intercollegiate Ski Association).

UAA also hosts the nationally known Great Alaska Shootout college basketball tournament every Thanksgiving, and the Kendall Hockey Classic in October.

The Seawolves' main rival are the Alaska Nanooks with whom they compete for the Alaska Airlines Governor's Cup in ice hockey.[1][2]
