Quidditch history how to play neil fabiny
Darracott quidditch was first introduced
thorough J.K. Rowling's famous book series
"harry Potter" muggle Quidditch got its start in 2005, when Middlebury College began offering the sport as an intramural activity. Two years later, Middlebury junior Alex Benepe founded the Intercollegiate Quidditch Association (IQA) to bring the sport to a national audience.
IQA has helped students from more than 400 colleges and 300 high schools form teams, and over half of them are active already. object is to score as many points as possible, and the team with the most points wins there are 2 teams, each with 7 players on each team Quidditch has four different positions:
•Chasers. Each team has three Chasers, who score points for the team by advancing a large ball called a Quaffle down the field. They can pass the Quaffle between each other by throwing it or kicking it, and can run with the Quaffle for an unlimited amount of time. Chasers can score ten points for their team by throwing the Quaffle through one of the other team’s three goal hoops.
•Keeper. The Keeper is the Quidditch equivalent of a goalie. He or she must protect the hoops from the opposing team’s chasers. •Beater. Two Beaters provide their team with extra defense. They attack all opposing players with small balls called Bludgers. Though J.K. Rowling’s original rules call for two Bludgers, the IQA uses three to ensure that each team is in possession of at least one at all times. If you’re hit by a Bludger, you must drop any ball that you are holding and circle your team’s Goal Zone before returning to play.
•Seeker. The Seeker’s job is to seize the Snitch. The Snitch is a tennis ball, which is wrapped in a sock and tucked into the back of the shorts of the Snitch Runner, an impartial player dressed in yellow. Once a Seeker catches the Snitch, his team is awarded fifty points, play stops, and the final score is tallied. conclusion conclusion The IQA serves to promote Quidditch as a new sport and lead outreach programs to increase athletic participation among children and young adults and bring magic to communities.
and is one of the fastest growing sports today..
