New Resources for Teams, Coaches, and More From USQ

USQ has released a variety of resources available to the quidditch community.

USQ has conducted a variety of feedback opportunities during 2019 to help identify new resources to make available for the quidditch community. We have created new resource guides that we hope will be helpful for the continued growth of our sport. The guides can be found on the USQ resource pages of our website. The resources pages were also restructured to make information easier to find, and to include links to additional external resources. If you have any questions or suggestions for other resources, please reach out to strategicplanning@usquidditch.org
