Metro is Back!


Yes, we are bringing back the Nashville Metro League, with Wallabies and Redbacks teams, and new jumpers! Luke Chadwick has been appointed Metro Commissioner. The team captains have been appointed: USA Revolution players Andrew O’Dwyer and Thomas Procter, and they will be doing a draft of all available players prior to Jersey Presentation Night, when the teams will be announced. If you want to play, be sure to let us know so you can be drafted to a team! There will be five (5) games played on Friday nights at Morgan Park, ending with the Metro Grand Final the evening of the AFL Grand Final! Everyone is welcome and we created the Metro dues category specifically for those who want to get a kick and cannot commit to traveling with the team. Alumni are encouraged to join up!


Netball returns to Nashville


Yes, we are bringing back the Nashville Kangaroos Netball team, with Moreen Beierlein leading the way. This team has two national championships to its credit at the Netball America US Open event and is looking to get restarted. The team will be having exhibitions at each of the Kangaroos home games at Elmington Park this year, and will be looking for other matches and tournaments to compete in as well.
