Quidditch Give Kids Chance To Release Their Inner Wizard

Sturgeon Bay High School has recently taken up a new club sport, Quidditch. Students have an opportunity to be apart of a game made famous by J.K. Rowling in her book series Harry Potter.

There are four teams -- Gryffindor, Ravenclaw, Hufflepuff, and Slytherin -- with an average of 20 kids per team.

Gryffindor captain Wynnie Maravilla explains how the teams are getting ready for their big scrimmages and tournaments coming up within the next month.

The starting team consists of three chasers, two beaters, one keeper, and one seeker. The chasers use a quaffle, or volleyball, to score into three different hoops. The beaters use dodge balls for bludgers that they throw at the opposing team. If you are hit by a bludger, you must get off of your broom and walk around the three hoops to be able to come back into the game. The keeper acts as the “protector” of the three hoops and the seeker tries to find the snitch, who holds a sock containing a tennis ball. Since the school does not have the technology available to create a snitch, the teams have a player who acts as one. This player may run around the whole school until caught by the seeker.

Scrimmages and tournaments are scheduled to take place during lunch breaks this spring.
