FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Who is eligible to compete in this event?

The regional championship is open to all official member teams of USQ based in the South region. In order to participate, players must be official USQ members (trial members may not participate in regional championships or US Quidditch Cup 11 without first upgrading their membership).

How many teams will qualify to compete in the national championship?

There are 4 bids available for the collegiatiate divsion and 1 bid in the community division. Read more here.

Can teams attend multiple regional championships?

No, teams may only attend one regional championship per year.

Can my team attend a different regional championship than the one that is in my region?

Teams may apply to receive a waiver to attend a different regional championship than their own. Teams are not guaranteed a waiver to attend a different regional championship just by virtue of submitting the waiver request form. Possible acceptable circumstances under which a waiver will be granted include: assigned regional championship is much farther away than alternative regional championship, financially infeasible to attend assigned regional championship, or affiliated institution is holding a required activity during the regional championship (e.g. final exams). To apply to attend a different regional championship, please submit this form no later than one month before the date of your assigned regional championship.

Teams located in a region whose division is less than the minimum number of teams required to have a regional championship may also be invited to transfer and attend another regional championship of USQ’s choice, based on their location.

Who is planning this event?

All USQ events are planned in collaboration with the full events department, led by Events Director Mary Kimball and Events Manager Jillian Flom. You can see the full list of event department staff here. Additionally, we work with all of our volunteers across the league (ex. referee and snitch volunteers, regional coordinators, etc.) to ensure that events are the highest quality possible.
