Youth Programs

Regular physical activity for kids helps improve strength and endurance, reduces stress and anxiety, boosts self-esteem, and helps improve overall health. Our sport is a great way to encourage kids to get active, build teamwork skills, and to make lasting friendships.  

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.
