FSCC sponsors football, volleyball, men's and women's basketball, baseball and softball programs which compete in the Kansas Jayhawk Community College Conference, which is a member of the National Junior College Athletic Association. There are also men's and women's rodeo teams, which compete in the Central Plains Region of the National Intercollegiate Rodeo Association. Track and cross-country were dropped by the school prior to the 2010-11 academic year due to a lack of participation. Fort Scott's football team won the 1970 NJCAA National Championship and was national-runner up in 1971, 1972 and 2009.
