Quidditch is too awesome a sport to be kept within a single community; it is meant to be shared. Most (not all, but most) quidditch players are born only after setting foot on a college campus. Because of the abundance of community teams sprouting up all over the country, quidditch can be played well into one’s adult years. Yet, there’s a whole demographic that is missing out on this sport: children and adolescents.
That’s pretty tragic, considering how fun quidditch is.
We, the first generation of quidkids, have a duty to the next generation. Not necessarily to train them into quidditch prodigies, but to simply introduce them to the sport. Kids have the opportunity to become involved with soccer, softball, gymnastics, football, and every other sport almost as soon as they can walk. With enough exposure, maybe one day quidditch will be added to that list: a totally legitimate athletic outlet for school-aged kids.
We’re not quite there yet, but here are some tips for bringing Kidditch to your community!
