Green River students have the opportunity to compete in twelve sports through the NW Athletic Association for community colleges. Playing against 34 other colleges in the Pacific Northwest, the Green River "Gators" field women's teams in cross country running, soccer, golf, volleyball, basketball, fastpitch softball, and track and field. Men are organized in distance running, basketball, golf, track and field and baseball.

In 2011, Green River international students played a significant part of the success of many of the local teams. In golf, Madeleine Ottosson from Gothenburg, Sweden was the #1 female golfer during the fall season. Julie Heltne and Cecile Koldercup from Oslo, Norway brought their European flair to American soccer. Sin Yee Ang and Annette Yong from Singapore both earned spots on the cross country and softball team respectively. Fandy Cendrajaya also from Singapore has competed for the men's track and cross country teams.

International students who have a background in competitive sports can participate in Green River athletics if they are taking university transfer courses, can demonstrate a competitive ability and have a physicians report stating that are healthy enough to play. For more information students can contact:
Director of Athletics, Bob Kickner.
