In the case of the implementation of the inclement weather plan, the club sport team(s) may be required to utilize an alternative site.

In attempting to accommodate requests for the use of the Washburn Field, the following points must be honored by all Colorado College Club teams. Furthermore, each Club team bares the responsibility of sharing and enforcing these rules with their visiting opponents.
