Castleblayney College provides opportunities for all students to enjoy an extensive range of games and physical activity. While the trophy cabinet is full and the school holds titles at County, Provincial and All- Ireland levels in various sports, we believe that participation in sport is more important than simply winning. In addition to the competitive sports, students are encouraged to enjoy outdoor activity and sport for fun.
The school gym, with adjoining changing rooms, can cater for a wide range of indoor sports including: Basketball, Hockey, Indoor Soccer and Volleyball

In addition to the weekly P.E. classes, as part of the school curriculum, Castleblayney College teams successfully participate in and have an excellent record of achievement in a number of inter-school competitions in Gaelic football, Basketball, Soccer, Camogie, Hurling, Athletics and Cross-Country. In recent years the Gaelic football teams have been County Monaghan Champions at senior and under-age levels. The senior soccer team has been Cavan-Monaghan champions and Ulster finalists for a number of years. The Co. Monaghan VEC team that reached the 2008 All-Ireland final had eleven of our students on the team panel. In recent years, our boys and girls basketball teams have won regional and All-Ireland competitions.
