Quidditch

Yes, you read that right. Muggle Quidditch is a real thing, created by fans of Harry Potter at Middlebury College in 2005. The game is played holding broomsticks between the legs, and can best be compared to a combination of rugby, handball, and dodgeball with hockey style line changes and two people trying to take a tennis ball in a sock from a person dressed in yellow. Since its beginning eight years ago, the sport has grown to include over 800 teams from all around the world, with a governing body, the International Quidditch Association, made to facilitate competitive play.

Who We Are

We are Owls Quidditch. The team practices at and primarily made up of students from Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton, FL, but is open to anyone in the area that wants to join. Currently the team is placed 117 in the league after a strong effort at the Southern Regionals, placing seventh, one place shy of a bid for World Cup VI in Kissimmee, FL on April 13th and 14th. Now the team has gotten a spot in Division 2 of the World Cup, but needs help to get there.


Why We Need Help

I can already tell what you're going to be wondering, "Why does a Florida team need help getting up to the World Cup when it's in Florida?" Suffice to say is that we're broke college students. Unlike last year, the university is not giving the team any money, save for a small loan that wouldn't even cover the cost of gas to get the team to the cup. Because of the lack of funding we already had to drop out of one tournament, choosing to save our own money in order to make the trip to the regional championship in Augusta, GA. Because of that we have all but completely expended our own personal funds, leaving us very little to make the trip to the Cup and any tournaments in the future. Every little bit helps. Even if you can't donate, spreading the word around about this will be just as important. Anything you can do to help us will get our undying gratitude!
