Start a team: College & Club

WHAT IS QUIDDITCH?

Quidditch is a fast-paced, contact sport created in 2005 and played in over 40 countries. A quidditch team consists of up to 21 athletes with seven players per team on the field at any one time. Each player must keep a broom between their legs at all time. Points are scored by throwing a ball (the quaffle) through any of three hoops fixed at either end of the field, while another ball (the bludger) is used to ‘knock out’ players temporarily. The snitch is the ball that must be caught to end the game.

JOINT TEAM PROGRAM 

This joint team development program is intended to help new teams develop. The plan has two main components: a foster program, whereby an established official college club may be permitted to have students from one single other college on its roster, and a joint team program, whereby up to three schools that currently don’t have official teams may compete together as one team. Click here to learn more.
