Quidditch Canada is excited to reveal the athletes who have been selected to represent Canada at this year’s 2018 IQA Quidditch World Cup. These athletes were selected from the 42 person standing team that was established early in the fall of 2017.

The standing team program has enabled these athletes to work and train together over the course of the 2017-18 season under the direction and coaching of Head Coach Michael Howard, and Assistant Coaches Rachel Malone and Mathew McVeigh.

“Team Canada is eager to test ourselves against the best teams in the world in Florence. L’équipe canadienne est excitée de se mettre à l’épreuve contre les meilleurs équipes du monde au tournoi mondiale en Florence.” says Brian Gallaway, National Team Coordinator. “Ça sera excitant de voir l’évolution du sport et de l’équipe au cours des deux dernières années. It will be exciting to see just how much quidditch has grown and developed over the past two years.”
