The Nashville NightWatch is proud to announce, with the support of NUM (Nashville Ultimate Machine), the inaugural season of our women’s professional team, The Nashville NightShade!
After meaningful conversations with our female ultimate community about gender equity and discussions with other ultimate leaders around the country, we have decided to launch a women’s team at the highest level. We do have a tentative schedule in place for our team and will be announcing that once it has been finalized. Tryouts will take place in Nashville at the Vanderbilt Fieldhouse on February 24th. We will have a link for registration very soon.
We want to commend the efforts of the AUDL with the announcement of the EuroStars Tour Partnership. It’s a great step for the AUDL. We will take another step in offering a chance for women’s ultimate to gain more exposure and a unique opportunity to play ultimate professionally. We will provide our women’s team with similar benefits, which include venues, travel expenses, coaching, and live-streaming of all our women’s ultimate games.
We would like to thank Five Ultimate for partnering with us to be our uniform and merchandise provider to our women’s team. Five Ultimate is an industry leader in ultimate apparel, and we value our relationship with them very much. Thank you to NUM for supporting us, and our women’s ultimate community in helping make this team a reality.
