The Nashville Storm are a minor league outdoor football team entering our 8th season of play in the NAFL, North America’s largest minor outdoor football league with 124 teams. We are an amateur rather than a professional football organization, although we feature numerous players who have played football professionally in the past or who will play football professionally in the future. Playing football for the Nashville Storm, therefore, has usefulness for players seeking both professional and collegiate opportunities.
Over its’ first 7 years, the Nashville Storm has consistently been a championship-contending football program in the sprawling, coast-to-coast NAFL (http://www.nafl.org). The Nashville Storm has compiled an aggregate 84-16 record in its’ first 7 years of play; the Storm has won the NAFL Southern Conference Championship in 2003, 2004, and 2006, earning berths in each of those years in the “Final Four” of the NAFL’s National Playoffs. In 2006, the Nashville Storm, after winning the NAFL Southern Conference Championship, became the first visiting team to ever win an NAFL1 Semifinal or “Final Four” playoff game by traveling 825 miles to Voorhies, NJ and upsetting the 1 seeded and undefeated South Jersey Lynx 27-24. This victory put the Storm in the NAFL National Championship Game at Disneyworld for the first time, where the Storm lost an epic struggle with the Dallas Diesel 24-19, a game that was in doubt up until the final play.
In closing, these are the objectives of The Nashville Storm Minor League Men’s Football Organization:
1 - To provide the Nashville area’s best over-18 football players not currently playing in a professional or collegiate program with the opportunity to display their abilities against the highest available level of football competition.
2 - To tirelessly promote the abilities of Nashville Storm players so that those who seek either professional or collegiate opportunities have the best possible chance to realize their goals.
3 - To provide the football fans of the Nashville and Middle Tennessee area with the opportunity to enjoy football played by outstanding adult athletes at a price lower than an evening at the movies.
4 - To go to Las Vegas, Nevada on a Saturday night in November and bring an NAFL National Championship back home to the greatest fans on the planet, the football fans of Nashville and Middle Tennessee.
