Who we are and what we do
The Colby Woodsmen’s Team is a student athletic club. We practice old-time logging skills such as standing-block chop, log rolling, sawing, pole climbing; and newer events such as axe throw and chainsaw. We travel to about six intercollegiate meets each year in addition to hosting our infamous Mud Meet here in March.
Our team is co-ed and open to any Colby students who are interested. No experience is necessary! All you need is a willingness to learn and a good sense of humor. If you’d like to get involved, feel free to come join us at practice any weekday afternoon.

All of our practices are open to anyone, whether you are interested in joining or just want to check it out. We are at the Woodsmen field (on Washington Street across from Jonson Pond) every weekday from 4:00 to 6:00.
