A member of the National Junior College Athletic Association, NJCAA Region II,  and the Oklahoma College Athletic Conference (Oklahoma-Arkansas), Carl Albert State College fields teams in DI Softball, DII Baseball, and DI Men’s & Women’s Cross Country. 


On February 1, 2019, CASC became a member of the National Association of Collegiate Esports (NACE) and  the first community college in Oklahoma to field teams in Poteau and Sallisaw. NACE signed a partnership agreement in March 2018 with the NJCAA, the governing body of athletics for over 500 two-year colleges and universities in the U.S. The partnership with the NJCAA recognizes NACE as the governing body of collegiate Esports and marks the second endorsement by a traditional governing body of collegiate athletics. The first was from the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA).

CASC also fielded teams in DI Men's & DI Women's Basketball until fall 2016.

CASC also fielded Rodeo teams from 1987-1993 and were coached by Frank Steano.
