On behalf of the Fighting Owls, we welcome you to our campus. We hope you enjoy your stay at Warren Wilson. Below we have outlined some helpful guidelines when visiting our campus.
Our training room is located down stairs in DeVries Gym. Charlie Wright is our Director of Wellness who supervises this department. There are examination tables, taping areas and a whirlpool that will be available for your use 90 minutes prior to competition. If you are traveling without an athletic trainer, please supply your own medical kit and all necessary medical information for athletes. Water, cups and ice will be available at the visiting team bench. If you have any questions, please call Charlie Wright at the number listed.
Warren Wilson College does not provide filming tapes at competition. Schools will need to have an extension cord along with a camera.
Visiting Team Parking
If you are traveling by a charter bus please notify us ahead of time to ensure a reserved spot in our parking lot. All buses will park in the lower parking area of DeVries Gym near the tennis courts.
Important notice for charter bus drivers! Most buses cannot make the left hand turn from Warren Wilson Road onto Chapel drive due to the incline and divot in the road. Please pass the entrance and take a right into the Kittredge parking lot. You can either park in that lot and walk across the street or turn around in the lot and proceed back to chapel drive. Buses can make the right hand turn from this direction.
Post-game statistics can be made available to the coaching staff 15 minutes after the contest. Please check in with the stat's person in order for us to get copies. Warren Wilson calls in scores to our local media Asheville Citizen Times after each game.
Warren Wilson College is located in Swannanoa between Asheville and Black Mountain. There are numerous restaurants within a 10-15 minute drive or fast food eateries near the college at exit 55. The best suggestions to a quick and affordable meal is to head back to exit 55 on highway 70 and stay straight on Tunnel road. You pass Zaxby's, Arby's, Bojangles, Cocula's (Mexican) and Subway. If you proceed down Hwy 70 past the mall and towards downtown there is the East Asian Buffet and Red Lobster.
