USQ MEMBERSHIP ELIGIBILITY
US Quidditch membership is open to teams and individuals residing within the United States of America. Teams and individuals residing in other countries should seek to register with their respective quidditch national governing body. If, throughout the season, it is discovered that a team or individual is not located within the USA, then that team or individual will be at that point barred from the league without refund or eligibility to participate in further events. Any official games played by this team throughout the season will be disqualified.
- Have played quidditch only in the US.
Individuals who have split residency and live part-time in the United States may be granted an exception to compete on a USQ team on a case-by-case basis. Exceptions will be based on proof of split residency, extenuating circumstances, and discussion with the other country's national governing body as applicable. Requests for an exception must be submitted by email to email@example.com. Requests for an exception will be evaluated within two weeks of submission, and the exception must be granted before the player registers for USQ membership.
Proof of Enrollment
All players on a collegiate team must attend the same school and must submit proof of enrollment to firstname.lastname@example.org before participating in an official game. Players may submit either an official proof of enrollment from their school’s registrar or an official class schedule showing the player’s full name and that the date of the course falls within the current season. Additional forms of proof of enrollment may be accepted on a case-by-case basis. If a player graduates or ceases to be enrolled at their school mid-season, they will not be permitted to play on that collegiate team after their enrollment at that school ends.
