Quidditch is a fun, fast-paced, and physical sport. Played by mixed gender teams, quidditch pushes the boundaries of sport and gender and is rapidly gaining popularity across Canada and around the world. Get started in quidditch by joining a team, starting a team, becoming a referee or Snitch Runner, attending our events, or volunteering with us.
If you live in an area that doesn’t have a quidditch already established, starting a your own team is the best and only option. It can take some dedication, but here are some basics tips to get started. Specifically, you will want to:
- Find the closest teams to you, because even if they seem far away, they may be able to help you get off the ground
- Acquire equipment (at minimum, you’ll probably want 6 hoops, one quaffle (ie. a volleyball), three bludgers (ie. dodgeballs), brooms, and coloured headbands (green for Keepers, white for Chasers, black for Beaters, and yellow for Seekers)
- Get the word out (create a team or organizational name, social media accounts, posters and flyers)
- Learn how to play (and read the rules)
- Plan your first practice
