The athletic program is an integral part of the school’s total education program. The athletic program at Cascia Hall strives to instill the desire and discipline to compete, along with the organizational skills needed to maintain academic success as well as athletic involvement.
The level of participation for each student is arranged according to grade and ability. The Upper School varsity program emphasizes successful competition based on a solid foundation of commitment. The purpose of the sub-varsity and Middle School programs is to teach commitment and develop other skills of the individual athlete. The mission of the athletic department, regardless of the level, is the development of perseverance, sportsmanship, endurance, strength, coordination, self-confidence, and teamwork, as well as creating a winning attitude and an appreciation of recreational habits that will last a lifetime.
Middle School students (Grades 6-8) are required to take physical education classes, and team sports participation is extracurricular for all students in grades 6-12. Approximately 75% of students elect to participate in athletic programs after the academic day.
Opportunities exist for students to get involved at all levels and in every season. Sports offered include football, cross country, cheer, volleyball, basketball, wrestling, tennis, track, baseball, soccer, and golf. Depending on the sport, the Upper School teams compete in the 4A or 5A level of the Oklahoma Schools Activities Association (OSSAA). Middle School students participate in the Catholic Diocesan League.
The extensive athletic facilities include two gymnasiums, a strength and fitness center, eight locker rooms, eight tennis courts, a baseball field, a softball field, a wrestling facility and a multipurpose field. The stadium is named in memory of Ray H. Siegfried, II ‘61. "Rev. William A. Hammil, OSA Field" has Field Turf for football, soccer, and other field sports as well as an eight-lane track.
Commando sports competition is an important aspect of the Cascia Hall experience, and winning teams are a significant part of the school’s tradition. Since joining the OSSAA in 1976, Cascia Hall varsity teams have earned 56 State Championships in 12 sports.
