The Nashville NightWatch are a professional ultimate team from Nashville, Tennessee playing in the South Division of the American Ultimate Disc League.[3] The team was founded in 2015 and plays its home games at Vanderbilt University.

Breaking gender barriers[edit]

The Raleigh Flyers made news in 2015 by signing the first ever female professional ultimate player, Jessi Jones, to play in their game against the Nashville NightWatch as part of "Women's Ultimate Day".[4] The NightWatch went a step further in 2017 by rostering Jesse Shofner from the beginning of the season.[5] Shofner subsequently scored two goals in the NightWatch's first game of the 2017 season, making her the first woman to do so in any AUDL game.[6]
