This last Friday night, a group of Midwest quidditch players took to the field at the Culver military Camp over in Indiana, playing against the home challenger, the Camp Counselors. Apparently, someone in our sport felt this was a bad idea, as seen in Luke Changet’s blog…
Quidditch has grown to be something that means quite a lot to me. In fact, before I left for exchange, I cried more when I said goodbye to my team for the last time, than when I said goodbye to my family. There are a good few things on my exchange to do list and meeting Quidditch teams abroad…
It’s so cool how far the Quidditch community reaches, and how caring and real the relationships it fosters are. Two of our very own are in this picture, and they had an incredible time freezing their butts off with all those cool BAQC players!
MUDBLOODS is a feature documentary that follows the UCLA Quidditch team on their journey to the 5th Annual Quidditch World Cup in New York City. It’s a film about an underdog team playing an underdog sport. A culmination of 2 years spent documenting the fearless, bold individuals who dedicate their lives to the sport of Quidditch; the entrepreneurial force behind the International Quidditch Association (IQA); and the cultural phenomenon that has defined a generation.
One of the projects within the development department is kidditch. We work to develop youth quidditch resources, and to promote opportunities for youth to get involved. All three fall US regionals included kidditch events, and we’re developing resources to help more people host these events.
What do you like most about kidditch? Do you have any tips for hosting successful youth quidditch events?
Brandeis is all about kidditch! We have an elementary school just down the street and we go and teach the kids every year. Seeing the future stars of our sport is one of the coolest things ever.
Tips: dial back the intensity and competition, because these kids are there to have fun. Also, start the kids off with the physical drills (such as throwing the quaffle through the hoops) and then explain bit by bit how these drills help actual gameplay.
Stadium lights on the pitch tonight, not a gold snitch to be seen. A kingdom of ball-evasion, and it looks like I’m the queen. The offense fouling, feel the fear rip up like tide Couldn’t make it hit, Heaven knows I tried.
Don’t let them pass, don’t let them seek Give a good hurl, your bludger…
