The Southern Virginia Knights are the athletic teams that represent Southern Virginia University, located in Buena Vista, Virginia, in NCAA Division III intercollegiate sports. The Knights compete as members of the Capital Athletic Conference. Altogether, Southern Virginia sponsors 22 sports: 11 for men and 11 for women.


The school's athletics programs historically competed in the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics, and also competed in national tournaments of the United States Collegiate Athletic Association (USCAA). Southern Virginia began its athletic program in the fall of 1997, one year after it became a four-year liberal arts college with an LDS environment. In 1998, the Knights joined the United States Collegiate Athletic Association. The 2012–13 school year was SVU's first as a provisional NCAA Division III member; it joined the Capital Athletic Conference in July 2013, and became eligible for conference championships in 2014–15.

SVU became fully eligible for the NCAA in July 2016.
