It’s very important for kids to be active and for adults to support this activity. Regular physical activity helps to improve strength and endurance, reduce stress and anxiety, boost self-esteem, build muscles and healthy bones, control weight, and improve overall health. If children can pick up healthy habits now, they can carry the habits with them into a healthy adult life.
In recent years, the quidditch community has started including kids more and more in the sport. Teams have reached kids with summer camps, kidditch workshops, and after-school programs. Other teams have been invited to birthday parties to teach quidditch. Organizations such as Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, and Boys and Girls Clubs have paired up with teams to introduce the youth to quidditch.
Youth teams are encouraged to register as a free team on our website by selecting "My Team" from the Dashboard while logged in. Doing so allows your team to be featured on our map, which can help new players find you, and can help you contact other teams nearby to set up matches.
