Cashell Fieldhouse/Support FacilitiesROBERT CASHELL FIELDHOUSE
Originally little more than a locker room facility, the Robert Cashell Fieldhouse has undergone two major renovations in the past eight years (1989 and 1993). The Fieldhouse serves as the command center of the Nevada football program. Named for Robert Cashell, the principle donor for the renovations, the fieldhouse is home to the football staff as well as containing conference and media rooms. It has expanded team locker rooms, equipmment and fitting areas for the athletes on the lower level. The second story is complete with conference rooms, film rooms, coaches offices and a reception area.
Conveniently located one level below the football coaches offices and meeting rooms, next to the Reno Orthopedic Clinic Sports Medicine Center and the weight room is the Cashell Equipment Room. This provides storage, issuing of equipment to players and a laundry service for both football and baseball. The facility also houses locker rooms for Nevada's football and baseball teams and provides a coaches locker room and a team meeting room.

RENO ORTHPAEDIC CLINIC SPORTS MEDICINE COMPLEX
Opened July 1, 1993, the Reno Orthopaedic Clinic Sports Medicine Complex, located next to Cashell, is one-of-a-kind, state-of-the-art complex that offers Nevada student-athletes some of the finest sports care in America.
The multi-million dollar complex was funded by the Reno Orthopedic Clinic, and serves as a treatment center for Nevada student-athletes and a diagnostic/therapy center for area residents.
WOLF PACK PRACTICE FIELDS
Located between Mackay Stadium and Peccole Park, two grass practice fields are available for the football team to use. Employing an innovative subterranean watering system developed by Reno-based Evaporative Control Systems, the fields were equipped with the system in the summer of 2000. They will require less water and maintenance than surface watering systems, saving the department money.
